    I love this! When I was a kid, it helped me to deal with anger to think to remember that anger and hate lead to the dark side.

    And honestly, I am an adult now. and I still find it is a great idea to live by.

    I’m a bit older, Star Wars came out when I was in my mid 20s. What I used came from Star Trek, “I am a Vulcan. There is no pain.”

    This takes such a foreign concept to kids and puts it in their language! I really love it and plan to use it with my students and my daughter to help them with their anxiety.

Pero pueden utilizar ot héroes. Superman oculto en alguien modesto y servicial, un gran magnate adinerado utilizando sus recursos económicos para ayudar a los demás como Batman, Alguien con habilidades físicas e intelectuales amigo de los indigentes como el llanero solitario con amigo indio.
