As one mother wrote to us, “My kids were nervous about going back to school – so we made a list of everything they were worried about and then practiced the skills we’d learned in Kidpower – and they went from feeling scared to becoming excited! Thank you!”
We are very pleased to be working with so many parents and educators around the world to provide the “People Safety” skills and strategies we teach to their families, schools, and youth organizations.
With summer vacations coming to an end in many communities, I wanted to call your attention to several of our most popular articles and videos for making the “back to school” experience as safe and happy as possible.
