Superheroes, a new business created by Elizabeth Cramer, is now open in Fishers.
The business is a type of life coaching for kids and teenagers, whether they have disabilities or not. It helps manage stress and anxiety, test or school trouble and it promotes positive self-talk.
Cramer was a school councilor for Hamilton South Eastern and noticed a need for proactive teaching.
“We need to help parents in their goal of trying to teach kids to be competent and to reduce their stress, to deal with conflict resolutions, have a positive identity, and to be leaders and stay motivated,” Cramer said. “Kids are struggling in a lot of areas.”
The name came from Cramer believing that all superheroes should celebrate their strengths, but they have weaknesses, too. She said she hopes to develop coping skills for those weak areas.
“Kids are going to have challenges in everyday life and we want to empower them so they are ready to handle those,” Cramer said.
This summer, Cramer is offering 20 different types of camps at Superheroes, all involved with helping kids improve themselves. The list of camps, which includes stress reduction, conflict resolution, empowerment and more, are available through the website, www.wesuperheroes.com.
Although the primary focus is the kids and teenagers, Cramer said that Superheroes helps work with the parents as well.
Cramer can be reached at 288-9141. There are still positions available for the camps. Cramer said she hopes to continue the idea of the camps into the fall and winter as well.
“It’s a unique place, I don’t know of any other business like it, definitely not in this area,” Cramer said. “We want the clubs to help kids and teens work on their particular weak areas that they need to address or just strengthen the skills they already have.”
