The #PullYourWeeds Blog was created by Shanna Truffini for the You Are a Gardener platform as a resource for families, teachers, educators and therapists to access tools, activities, crafts and inspirational messages all rooted in the foundation of helping young kids manage their emotions.  Our program is rooted in spreading the seeds of social and emotional learning skills for kids to be able to identify, communicate and manage their emotions in a positive productive way.  We are based in New Jersey and can provide virtual workshops.  The foundation of You Are a Gardener™ uses gardening vocabulary as emotional metaphors to empower kids with organic and relatable words to help them recognize what they are feeling.  The Pull Your Weeds Blog was inspired to help kids manage stress with productive and positive conflict/resolution skills.
