Author | Permission to Use InfoApril is Child Abuse Prevention Month. As part of our global efforts to help protect kids from abuse, bullying, and other harmful behavior, each day this month, we will share a time-tested skill from our Kidpower® 30-Skill-Challenge Coaching Handbook.
Skill #1: Build confidence by taking in compliments. Today, give at least one kid or a child’s adult the gift of a meaningful compliment. Coach them to take your message into their heart. Meaningful compliments focus on actions like caring, trying, working, learning, or helping rather than on physical appearance, strength, or achievements. Taking in kindness helps kids to build confidence and belief in themselves, which is a powerful personal safety tool.
For a FREE explanation on the simple methods you can use to teach children to use each of these skills, download the Kidpower® 30-Skill-Challenge Coaching Handbook on our website –this ebook will be FREE of charge in English, Spanish, and Arabic in honor of April as Child Abuse Prevention Month.
Please share this skill with others. Let’s work together to teach young people to take charge of their safety, increase self-confidence, and develop healthy, positive relationships!
