SPONSOR A FAMILY
THE RUMERTIME FAMILY SUMMER CAMP(RFSC)!!
Here is the story of a RFSC 2020 sponsor:
Here is why my family sponsored two families for the 2020 RFSC ?
Dear Potential Sponsor:
This is our family’s story about why we chose to sponsor two families for the RFSC™ 2020. We were desperate for social emotional wellness tools to help us as parents and to help our daughter.
“My nine year old daughter was speaking of anxiety and stated that she didn’t feel like she mattered. She said, “I don’t think anyone will even miss me if I am gone.” My husband and I didn’t know what to do, we tried telling her that she did matter, that we love her, that everything we do is for her, but somehow that didn’t help her.
After trying numerous strategies we found a two week program that promised to “fix” our daughter. Throughout those two weeks we were not included in the treatment planning while our child was receiving services; nor did we receive any tools to work with our child once she completed the program. Two weeks later and $10,000 poorer we still didn’t know how to help our daughter, nor did we have any further insight into the root of the anxiety and issues of feeling insignificant.
I found out about the RUMERTIME Process™ and was coached in using it. The RUMERTIME Process™ has given me tools, skills, and strategies to help me look at myself and how my own unresolved trauma, internal conflicts, and social emotional imbalance influences my child’s anxiety and our relationship. We have been using the RUMERTIME Process™ now and we are seeing improvements in our parent-child relationship; I see growth in myself and my social emotional imbalance and I feel less overwhelmed because I have tools to help me be a better parent and my child is benefiting from it. I absolutely support this RFSC: Social Emotional Wellness Program™. Be a DISRUPTOR! Bring families TOGETHER!
Yours Rumerizingly, BLS

How will my sponsorship help a family?
The RFSC™ is a two week (five days/week) social-emotional wellness program for families seeking to improve relationships in their homes, schools, and communities. The RFSC™ aims to educate, equip, and empower children(8-18 year olds) and parents/caregivers through immersion and coaching social emotional skills. Families will be taught simple, yet long-lasting social-emotional skills which each of them can use at home, school, work and in their community.
As parents/caregivers and children/tweens/teens practice and learn these skills during the ten days of the RFSC™ they will begin to see growth and changes in themselves and their children/tweens/teens as well as changes in the relationship between their children/tweens/teens and themselves.

What Is the Focus of the RFSC®?
The RUMERTIME Process® is a five step culturally-responsive, social-emotional, problem-solving strategy that empowers and inspires individuals as they move from intra and interpersonal imbalance to balance and from unconscious living to conscious living. Using the RUMERTIME Process® to Educate, Equip, and Empower Families to Renew their Minds, Transform their Lives and Create safer Communities.
Educating, Equipping, and Empowering families with the social emotional skills to enhance parent-child relationships in the home. Equipping parents(families) with the healthy MARKERS™( Mindsets, Activities/Ambitions, Relationships, Knowledge, Emotions, Resources, and Skills/Strategies) to help themselves and those in their family unit for whom they are responsible.
Increasingly, parents are feeling ill-equipped to help their children with their mounting, complex social-emotional(SE) needs. Conversations and interactions are tense, superficial, and many times damaging. In the meantime parents are becoming acutely aware that their own unresolved SE issues are playing a major role in creating barriers to safe and healthy interactions. Consequently, Children are learning unhealthy ways of relating to themselves and others, which shows up in homes, schools and other places. For parents it shows up as a sense of inadequacy and inability to parent adequately, perform on their jobs optimally, and relate with partners and other significant people effectively. Parents are saying that their own SE issues get in the way of their relationships with their child(ren). They desperately want to learn ways to Recognize, Understand, Manage, Express and Reflect on their Thoughts, Interactions, Mindsets, and Emotions(RUMERTIME™) that will proactively enhance the relationship with themselves, their child(ren) and vice versa. They crave tools to help with their own SE wellness so they can help their child(ren) with their SE wellness. Parents are crying out for an integrated, culturally responsive, relatable and accessible intervention that allows them to apply foundational strategies of SE skills across diverse settings.
