This helped there epidemics in their classroom and get better grades. It also helped them trust one another in life. So when they were playing basketball they had 218 game losing streak. But for their last game of they had came close to winning but they did not. Then after the lost game one of the coach inspired the girls by singing to the girls. After all of the games that they had lost they were learning how to grow up and be responsible. The lesson that the kids were learning taught them not to grow up like their parents.
