Confident Cub Terms of Service

The following Terms of Service apply to your use of this online resource center. By registering with us or using or browsing this website, you acknowledge that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by these terms.

User Acknowledgment

This website is designed to be used by parents, teachers, and professionals over the age of 18.

This information is for educational purposes only and is in no way a substitute for or form of clinical treatment. Your use of this site does not indicate a professional or medical relationship with the authors or owner of the site. You are not a client or patient and we are not your professional service provider.

If you are a client or patient of Larina Kase or one of the other experts on the site please take care to protect your privacy and do not post any information that indicates that you are a patient.

You are responsible for your use of the information gleaned here. Please understand that we are ethically and legally bound to *not* answer specific questions from people who are not clients and with who we have not completed a thorough informed consent and evaluation process.

Do NOT, therefore, submit specific questions about your particular situation because we are not able to answer them. If you suspect that your child may benefit from professional assistance, please bring him or her in for an evaluation with a professional. You can ask your doctor or refer to our Resources to find therapist referrals in your area.

Inspiring Kids Art

Please view the art work and other content on this site with your child. This way you can discuss any questions that they bring up. Sometimes children see another child’s expression of their fears and worries and want to discuss their own fears and worries. Be prepared for this and to find the support of a professional to guide you if necessary. Children using this site under age 13 must be supervised by a parent or responsible adult.

The parents of children who contribute to artwork  have signed legal consent to share their stories and artwork and their privacy is protected by not including their names. Any person who provides their personal information through this site represents that they are 13 years of age or older. Please do, however, make efforts to protect your child’s privacy and take care not to post anything that could be embarrassing for them.

  • in a manner that breaches privacy for your child and could lead to embarrassing or other negative social consequences for your child;

  • in a manner that is libelous or defamatory, or in a way that is otherwise threatening, abusive, violent, harassing, malicious or harmful to any person or entity, or invasive of another’s privacy;
  • in a spamming or purely promotional manner; comments must contribute to the discussions;
  • in a manner that is hateful or discriminatory based on race, color, sex, religion, nationality, ethnic or national origin, marital status, disability, sexual orientation or age or is otherwise objectionable;
