Kidpower is an amazing program that should be required in every public school in America, annually. We teach our children so much but with child safety issues we still need to increase education. I attended an afternoon class that some concerned parents put together. Kidpower came and not only had great materials to read through after the class was over, but they role played many different difficult situations in a calm approach that was helpful to our children, but not overwhelmed them. Doing it correct the first time in a practice situation will only increase our children's chances of being about to make the right decisions in difficult situations whether it be lost in a store, talking to strangers or have a close family friend or even family member cross inappropriate boundaries. The comic book we took home continues to reinforce the correct learned responses. Kidpower is a priceless gift to give children and teens. And it is never too early to teach our children how to have their own power!

I would like to see this company funded more and for it to continue to grow to the point every child in America knows they do have power, kid power!

My 8 year old son was just harassed on our block by three older neighborhood boys. He came home crying and sad. When I asked him about what had happened he told me the story. Despite being upset by the experience - he had actually followed Kidpower personal safety rules that he'd learned in the two workshops he's attended! I was happy to hear that he had followed his safety rules: he didn't answer them back (used his mouth-closed power); didn't get closer to them but rode away (used his move-away power); came home immediately (went to safety) and told me (got help). THIS is Kidpower in action. When a child can use skills from a workshop to stay safe in the moment - that spells success!

I had heard fabulous things from parents in my community about Kidpower. I took my daughter to a Kidpower Workshop when she was 5 years old and was amazed at the valuable and relevant information! But I was also impressed with how fun, interactive, and the non-feared based ways in which the skills were taught. There was nothing scary about learning how to be safe around people! I realized after that class that both my children needed a Kidpower class - but not just once. They will each attend every year of their lives until adulthood. People safety skills are like water and bike safety skills - they need to be lived and practiced daily. I sincerely believe every child and teen needs and deserves a Kidpower Teenpower class every year.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

How much confidence my daughter has when having to set boundaries with her friends and also with strangers.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

How consistently positive and proactive they are - their workshops as well as their timely and relevant e-newsletters.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Upbeat, positive, helpful and caring.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Change an entire population of children and teens, w hich would change how people relate to one another exponentially. If kids and teens could feel safe, set boundaries and feel empowered in their world - who knows how much could transform on his planet!

Ways to make it better...

My husband had attended so he could have learned what my daughter and I did!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

How to get the word out to more and more potential clients, schools, families, communities...

One thing I'd also say is that...

If communities and schools were interpersonally progressive they would be doing everything and anything to get Kidpower and Teenpower skills taught to their youth.

Kidpower gave me the language that allows me to easily talk to my son about being safe in a variety of situations. For example, I can simply explain why he can't do certain things without getting into a power struggle, and because we can talk about what he would do in certain situations, I have the confidence I need to allow him to grow in his independence (for example, dealing with public bathrooms now that he is too old to go into the ladies room with me - thank you, Kidpower!)

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

get them funding so they could bring the price down so that more people would do it. It's worth every penny, but people seem to bulk at anything over $40 and they are missing out on important info!

I was gifted the kidpower book by my sister for my daughter, I have found that very useful. Post that I bought the kidpower book for caring adults. The book is very useful , I have used and discussed with my daughter and she has found it very useful and learnt the skills . I am absolutely a great admirer of this organisation. Would like to volunteer for them when they are in India.

I am absolutely in love with this organization and attribute their teachings to protecting and empowering both my children and I. I have attended numerous workshops with Kidpower and find them to be exceptional. They are power based, not fear based. This is not about Stranger Danger, this is about teaching children to look, listen and be strong, to talk, to have a voice, to use it, to help them selves and to help others. Many times my children have used what they have learned from Kidpower, as have I. When tragic events happen the first thing I do is suggest Kidpower programs to those in need. So often people feel helpless or lost when they have heard of an event that places lives in jeopardy of when something painful has happened to them or those they know. Kidpower helps to remove those feelings and replace them with strength, dignity and power.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

assure that their presence is known and accessible to all families with children of all ages so that everyone in our county and beyond is able to have the confidence that comes from Kidpower programs.

My daughter took a Kidpower workshop two years ago at age 12, and it increased her skills, awareness and confidence. She's small and slight for her age, so it also helped lessen my anxiety about her safety. Now that she is in a large high school with an open campus, I plan to take her back to Kidpower for another workshop to refresh and add to her skills. Kidpower provides an excellent and unique community service.

I've been to a workshop with my daughter and granddaughter and my granddaughter loved it and learned some skills that she likes using. I am a family law attorney and I routinely carry a kidpower coloring workbook in my briefcase. When I see a bored, cranky small child in the courthouse hall who is figiting and driving his/her parent nuts, I give the pagges to them and so far, both parent and child have become interested and entertained. The materials offered by this group are very worthwhile and helpful.

As a family law attorney, I gave the wotkbook to a client who'5 year old was acting angry and hitting children who said mean things to him. He wouldn't let her stop reading it to him and wanted to start over when they were finished. The next day he told his mom that when a child had been mean to him, he decided that the child was not safe and used his walk away power to solve the problem. He and my client were very pleased. This really should be taught in schools.

I had been searching for the appropriate self-defense workshop that I could take with my 16-year old son and feel very fortunate to have found the Teenpower program. The instructors addressed the needs of all the participants based on their personal experiences, age, background and ability. They were caring, and experienced teachers. The program was interesting, informative, useful and fun all at the same time. I would highly recommend it and suggest that organizations look to offering similar programs in schools and community associations.
