WHAT'S IN A WAYPOINT KIT?

DO I REALLY NEED TO BUILD RESILIENCE IN MY CHILD?

The most common question we get asked is, “Why do my kids need to build resilience? And why now?” 

The concept of Chimney Trail was initially designed to help military families reconnect when returning home following long periods of absence and stress. However, after collaborating with professors at Stanford and doctors at the University of South Dakota, it became evident that the issue of kids being ill-equipped to cope with stress extended far beyond just the military community. Our Waypoint Kits are clinically designed to help kids build skills & emotional durability while dealing with stressors so they can come out stronger rather than just “getting through it.” 

There’s no shortage of stressors in kids' lives these days. In our research, we’ve identified a few core factors that answer the question of “why now?”

1. We’re all recovering from the stress of the pandemic and reacclimating to the real world; one in which social skillsets are changing drastically. 

2. Social media platforms target young audiences and more kids are using social media as a tool to determine their value. This is a critical time to help kids find value outside of their online lives, improve their mental health, and increase their self-efficacy. 

3. Historical resources like Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and youth programs are not as prominent or supported in current society, leaving major gaps to be filled in a child’s social and mental development.
