JPA is lucky to have the spirit of our founder, Jane Addams, helping us stay true to our mission. In her honor, we created "Ask Jane," a way for students, parents, teachers, and others to ask questions about issues affecting them. You can ask her about dealing with stress, how trauma affects children, ways to constructively discipline a child, and related topics. Simply complete the form with your question and she'll get back to you with a public response. If your request is personal, let her know and you'll receive a personal reply.
Here you'll find ideas, tips, and lessons you can use in the classroom or living room to build relationships with your students or children.
