Manadoob Program

The Manadoob Program for Self Esteem is an essential manadoob animalseducational tool allowing all children ages 7-12 to face the challenges in the world today, and empowering them to do the right thing. Kids are taken on a journey with a little girl and experience life’s challenges along with her, her dog and the help of some whacky characters. This 6 month program gives kids the opportunity to think critically and see the world through others eyes thus developing a sense of empathy to all living things and themselves.

Some of these challenges include:

  • Bullying
  • Death or Divorce of a Parentmanadoob animal boy
  • Test Anxiety
  • Managing Stress in a Fast Paced World
  • Childhood Obesity
  • Animal Welfare
  • Social Anxiety

This would be a great social experience for home schoolers.
