  • “A lot of the labels that are given are well intention, but it certainly can have this incredibly negative effect on the child’s sense of self worth.” – Yael Walfish
  • “When we catch the moment and we create that moment of success, then build that moment and help a child see that as their identity, that absolutely impacts their inner world or their self esteem.” – Yael Walfish
  • “Everyone already has what they need to thrive. It’s just sometimes we have to dig a little to uncover it because it’s been piled over with all of the labels and bad experiences they had.” – Emily Melious
  • “I want to say to the parents, don’t give up.” – Yael Walfish
