    I love Janine’s energy, joy and charm! The simple and powerful ideas she shared could be used so easily with children (and adults!) in any setting. Can’t wait to try them! Tools like mindfulness which are with us all the time and free of cost, are just awesome! Thanks Debbie, you are a wellspring of fabulous resources. A salute to you and what you do!
