Kidpower Focuses on Solutions, Not on Problems.

Just like a good swim teacher focuses on having fun practicing swimming skills – not on talking about drowning! – Kidpower focuses on having fun practicing safety skills – not on talking about danger. The Kidpower Safety Workshop for Kids with Their Adults is designed to help kids learn skills to be safe with people in ways that are upbeat, active, effective – and fun, not scary. Adults are Family Safety Leaders. This is not a class ‘for kids’ – it’s a class for families! Adults are the Safety Leaders for their own family every day. So, they are the most important learners in a Kidpower Safety Workshop for Kids with Their Adults. The best way to support the safety of kids is to support their adults in feeling skilled and confident as Safety Leaders. So, you are very important students!

Kids are Family Safety Team Members.

We believe that keeping kids safe is a grown-up job. It’s also a grown-up job to support kids in learning skills for taking charge of their own safety in age-appropriate ways. At the same time, kids are important members in your Family Safety Team. By Checking First, Speaking Up, and following Stranger Safety Rules even very young kids can take positive, powerful action to be safe.

The Family Safety Team Learns Together.

Kids and adults learn together in upbeat activities practicing powerful solutions to problemsfamiliar to kids. For example, even very young kids know about problems like sand-throwing and pushing in line. Examples are adapted to be age- appropriate and relevant. We support families in building skills and confidence together without using fear as a motivator. As long as adults are calm and open to having fun, most families with kids already feeling fearful tell us their kids feel less scared and more confident after the class.
