Even a few minutes of learning a week can make a great difference to our children’s safety and confidence all their lives long!

I want to thank everyone who responded so positively to our Back to School With Safety and Confidence post last week by using and sharing this information.

I also want to call your attention to this joyful “Got a Minute for Safety” MyGym Fitness video showing their instructors presenting Kidpower Safety Minutes to the kids in their classes – and to thank My Gym Enterprises for their partnership and support in introducing Kidpower to children and families across the US and around the world.

With September around the corner, International Child Protection Advocacy Month is almost here – and we will be providing you with a number of free online child protection resources that you can share through your in-person and online social and professional circles.

Together, we can transform the fear of bullying, violence, and abuse, into a future of lifelong safety, confidence, and success for today’s youth.
