As an organization dedicated to teaching people to take care of their emotional well-being, we want people to feel joyful rather than pressured when they give or ask others to give. Kidpower’s new Conscious Giving article includes 5 assessment questions for making decisions about charitable donations.
any of us can tell stories about how a lack of awareness or skill on the part of well-meaning people, who were supposed to help, caused great harm to someone who had a medical problem. We need to know how to protect ourselves from being hurt in these types of situations, just as we need to know how to defend ourselves from a deliberate assault.
The skills of protection and advocacy can work any time you need to protect yourself physically or emotionally. Being able to advocate for yourself and your loved ones can have a life and death impact when you are dealing with health and medical issues.
Since 1989, Kidpower’s Positive Practice™ Teaching Method has helped countless people of all ages and abilities to change habits of using weak, rude, or other ineffective behavior to habits of using powerful and respectful behavior in their relationships with others,with themselves, and with the world around them.
