Kidpower teaching story about using different tools to teach kids how to protect themselves from hurtful words like “Crybaby”
Kidpower Safety Signals provide quick, easy-to-remember gestures with simple words and graphics that can be practiced with even young children within a few minutes – and also can be a useful tool to help adults remember to stay in charge of what we say and do, even if we are angry.
One thing we at Kidpower have learned over the years as parents and teachers ourselves is that for Halloween to be fun – we have to KNOW OUR AUDIENCE and PLAN AHEAD. None of the young kids we know like to see R-rated murder and mayhem – so every year we scout out ahead of time our trick-or-treat route and check in with neighbors to make sure we avoid streets that kids might not want see – because it’s too scary. A little planning ahead and thought about who will be experiencing your Halloween displays, costumes, and celebrations, can go a long way to making Halloween fun and safe for the kids and adults in your lives!
