Building values and self-esteem in kids and teens.

Who is Deeds From the Heart & What do we do?

Deeds From The Heart works with families who have children aged 4-12 and helps them in building character, confidence and self-esteem on a daily basis in their kids.

Today’s children are living in their own bubble, unaware of the world around them.  They tend to sit on a couch or in their bedroom texting on their phone, playing video games on their iPad or computer, and using an Xbox for hours on end.  Girls yearn to look like models in magazines and boys who are not in sports feel left out.  On top of this, today’s children feel “entitled” and are “enabled” by the people who love them the most.  This is not a rosy picture.

Deeds From The Heart is the one organization that can get you and your children beyond all of this so they can grow feeling confident and great about themselves.

When kids have confidence, they make better decisions for themselves and move in a positive direction.

The bedrock of our program has always been social actionResearch has shown that kids who engage in social action, tend:

  • To be lifelong givers
  • Do better in school
  • Refrain from drugs, alcohol and teen sex

My children and I participated in Deeds From The Heart events for several years. The each event gave the kids an opportunity to do something for others……it helped them to see and understand how lucky they are and how it is important to reach out and help other people.

Deeds From the Heart is a must for any family that wants to provide their kids the gift of compassion and tolerance. Every program we participated in provided a unique and memorable learning experience that I could not have exposed them to without this wonderful program.
Alicia Dunn
We love Deeds from the heart because it teaches kids to appreciate and value other people’s lives, as well as theirs. It teaches compassion, tolerance, and appreciation for important things in life.
Deeds from the Heart has taught me many things that I will carry on for the rest of my life! We learned about different people and the issues they have. For example, we met people who were disabled and talked to someone who was burned but survived which was inspiring. I also learned about working with others to create fundraisers. This program has taught me to be grateful for what I have. For example, Deeds from the Heart raised $5,000 for the Make-a-Wish Foundation to make a sick boy’s dream come true. His dream was to go to Disneyland with his family and we were able to make that possible for him. He was so grateful and seeing the look on his face was so special! My favorite thing we have done is giving back to the community. It is amazing to give back and see the impact you have made in someone’s life!
Deeds from the heart has benefited my family and I in many different ways. It has taught us that it is very important to volunteer and spend time with the elderly. We have volunteered at a food pantry and spent time at various senior centers. In Deeds From the Heart, we have also helped children in need. Overall, this program is a great way to help people in need, spend time with people at senior centers, and deliver food to people who especially need it.
Deeds From The Heart is one of the best things I did for my kids. It gave them compassion, confidence, and personal growth. I highly recommend it.

Why Children Need Time To “Daydream”

If imagination is the precursor to creativity,  then children need lots of time to daydream.  Einstein didn’t develop his brilliant theories in a lab, rather, they were developed through “visual imagination”.  Imagine how many children […]

Lies, Lies and More Lies

Today in the news it was revealed that Russian track and field Olympians were doping and everyone from the coaches, doctors, labs and the International Association of Athletics Federations knew about it. In fact the former President of the Athletics Federations, Lamine Diack, is accused of taking bribes to conceal positive doping tests from the Russian athletics federation!!

This kind of behavior from athletes that are supposed to be role models for our children, is completely disheartening. How do we teach our children not to lie, when TV shows and real life people and organizations lie?

It is a fact that the pressure put on teens in school causes them to lie. A CNN pole has shown that 75% of high school students admit to lying and a whopping 50% think that is ok. These behaviors, despite what parents teach are pervasive. Elementary kids lie and cheat as well.

How do we stop this lying and cheating? I think positive role modeling and talking to your children about the consequences of lying are two of the strongest things parents can do. Because of the doping of Olympic athletes, Russia may be barred from participating in the next Olympics and future competitions. Consequences of lying must be stressed. Also, social action shows kids how lucky they are and has wonderful benefits when done consistently.

This is why Deeds From The Heart works with children between 4 and 12 so that they can experience greater character, confidence and self-discipline. When faced with the situation of lying or telling the truth, we hope they will take the high road. Parents can talk til the cows come out, but other people need to recite the same chorus. The more children hear the same thing from others, the message will sink in. It takes a lot of people to build the “inner self” of children.

Please start today and enroll your kids in Deeds From The Heart programs!! You will be happy you did!.
