April 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 #5: Build a visual boundary with “Stop Power”. Sometimes words aren’t enough. Clear, strong visual boundaries are more likely to be seen and respected when someone doesn’t listen at first. Practice how to stand up and use one or both hands, palms facing outwards, to show a “fence” physically. Adding this body language to the words, “I said ‘Stop!’” can make a verbal boundary clearer and stronger. Learn more!
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!
