Support Group

EL4Kids.Org is available to come to your organization to present a workshop or speak on a variety of topics.

“Family Matters Support Groups” are 4th Saturday morning in the Lakeland Florida area.

Online Zoom Family Workshop

Join Carol for a “Create a new chapter “Zoom Meeting” where real life topics are discussed. Create and publish your own chapter.

The thought-provoking conversation starters based on Freddy’s Fable

This gives you a chance to discover the “why” …meanings and motivations in all of the character's path to healing. See how God can help in situations…

This story is a conversation starter. We “glance” at the problem or challenge in the characters’ lives but don’t thoroughly explore them, leaving room for your “Rabbit-trails” to think about your life story. Can you imagine for a minute this story leading to your healing...your feelings of love and acceptance growing and healing based on God’s love and what He thinks of you?


The Workshop Comprehension Questions Description


Educators: Social and Emotional Learning Curriculum, matching the State Standards available upon request. Info@EL4KIDS.ORG

Advocates: Think about “Why” AND “How” in all six chapters. And think about how God can help.

WITH YOUR PURCHASE OF FREDDY THE FOSTER FROG BOOK 1

IN THE EL4KIDS STORE, YOU WILL RECEIVE $3 COMPREHENSION/REFLECTION QUESTIONS…

CHECK OUT A FEW REFLECTION EXAMPLES BELOW:


  • Looking through a troubled past is something you might not want to hurry through. Discuss why?

  • Have you experienced trauma… anything that has made you confused, sad, fearful or mad?

  • Have you had help sorting through your deep feelings?

  • Do you think memories have been a “sore spot” in your life?

  • Do people have a preconceived notion, about foster children?

  • Why does Elinor want to help Freddy?

  • If you had a friend that you knew that came to you to talk about their abusive family situation, what would you say to them?

A Guide For Individuals and Families

We hope that all who read this story find needed answers to include how to heal from hurts, hang-ups, addictions, and fears based on any past situation that has caused a trauma effect. I hope this helps friends who have experienced any kind of homelessness or abandonment. CPTSD, Chronic Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, is real, no matter if you are a baby or 93 years old.

We highly suggest that foster or adoptive children not hear the narrative repeatedly brought to their attention. “You are broken and we are so sorry. We will do our best to care for you and it will be a hard road.”

Please read the “Parent’s chapter,” where Elinor learns that it continues to be a ‘generation to generation’ abuse problem. This is spoken about in adoption school and in many of the children, this is the case. However, children believe what they are TOLD. There is no doubt that it will be a hard road but the Love from God can and will change things as they are repeatedly encouraged and spoken highly of.


You may be encouraged to help foster/adoptive families in many ways and spur involvement to help children.

1. Open up your home to foster or adopt.

2. Baby-sit for a foster family or cook, clean, shop, or laundry.

3. Bring a meal to the family.

4. Investigate how you can mentor and tutor the children in foster care.

5. Pray always for the children in foster care and those needing a forever home.

EL4Kids provides:

Read aloud workshops/support groups to groups in schools, churches, group homes, libraries, special needs families, families of all shapes and sizes. Etc.

  • Inspire student creative writing experiences using their imaginations to create new adventures/lessons in healing for Freddy. Publish the books the children write with Prayer With Purpose Publishing LLC. Send to Amazon KDP to put up for online sales to help raise money for foster child advocates.

  • Encourage adults to help spur child involvement…helping the ‘one-another’. Unifying the advocates is important!

  • Plan Community Unity Opportunities and “Community” the advocates....coming together in UNITY to help the kids…Park outings for foster families, Sewing workshops, Reading and Math tutors, bulk birthday parties, craft days, cooking classes, nutrition classes, etc.

  • Community Unity Workshops to groups in schools, churches, group homes, libraries, etc. and speak at events/conferences.

  • Encourage family fun by reading aloud and discussing different experiences together. (See reflection questions under ‘Teacher’)

Encourage Family morals & decision-making abilities:

“Family Matters” Game

This game is the focus of Chapter 4 of Book 2. Children are more and more resisting ‘family time’, not winning and losing well, and choosing to spend their fun time on their online games. This game is set in an everglades swamp, full of fun and dangerous obstacle course. It is an ‘awareness’ chapter to open the eyes of both the parent and the child. The game cards are fun questions that encourage conversation concerning decision-making for the present and the future. Fun activity cards are also included. Adults are encouraged to also spend time with their children in online game time.

Board Game Coming Soon ...

Speaking engagements & workshops are available.

Encourage family fun with positive activities.
