I took my daughter to a workshop, and she really loved it. Both my kids were excited to learn easy ways to describe their feelings, and strategies to help them deal with other kids at school who were causing problems. They like to practice the skills, and are getting good at telling me what they think the right reaction is to various situations. And we all use the trash can (a way of handling negative remarks) all the time. Overall, Kidpower is a great organization, and I wish all kids had a chance to go to the workshops.

The Great!

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

California, where I see kids learning to articulate and respect their own boundaries.

Very negative experience. The price is outrageous, esp. for a group of very young kids. The teaching is so common sense. We learned more from our American Girls book. My girlfriend could not make it because her child was sick, and she was told if they gave her a refund they would be below their break even cost. Uh - really? Donated space, one instructor, and $60 per kid for a room full of kids? The snack is water and crackers? And you can't refund for a parent of a sick child? The instructor was arrogant, reciting a canned speech, and would not take questions. Overall, a 100% negative experience.

I was mesmerized from the beginning. The training provided great insight and extremely powerful, realistic tools for children, and all people to take the power they have to care for themselves. I must admit the training brought up many feelings of powerlessness from my childhood, with a sort of joy and sadness that such tools were not available to me then. I love the idea that no one is powerless and that the right tools can make you strong.

Our children would live in a much safer world if all kids and parents had the opportunity to receive Kidpower instruction at schools and other community locations. The only limit is funding!

My kids attended Kidpower sessions and I was so impressed at the effectivness of the training. They really know what they are doing. The role-playing and practice means that kids not only know what to do, but will actually do it in a stressfull situation. I felt my kids were much safer after attending the sessions. This is a super program!

The Great!

Kidpower-Teenpower-Fullpower is a fantastic program. When they were very young both of my children attended workshops and learned such valuable skills in setting boundaries and staying safe with strangers. Now, as confident teenagers maneuvering through their lives they still remember those workshops and apply the skills regularly and happily, with due caution but no fear. Thank you for a wonderful program and staff!

My own two children, now teenagers.

This is one of the most well thought out children's programs I have ever seen! They tackle subjects that leave most adults tongue tied head on in a completely practical and age appropriate way. They work with all levels of kids and every kid I really wish all kids could experience their workshops!

Kidpower is one of our favorite organizations, one we make a point to donate to regularly. They help kids and the adults who love them navigate in a sometimes confusing and unsafe world, and they do with heart and humor and lots of cheering, which is really fun. Helping kids grow up to trust themselves and feel at home in their bodies is one of the best gifts we can give.

The Great!

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

how my neices, now a few years older, still use what they learned in the workshop.

I took my two kids to a kidpower class so they could learn how to stay safe, both physically and emotionally. I love how they have people practice acting out scenarios (and they keep things upbeat, not scary), so that the kids can remember what to do. Now my kids know to always check first with an adult, and they are empowered to know how to handle things when confronted with a bully or someone trying to put them down. I wish I had had such training when I was a kid. They also have very insightful articles on their website which I use to refresh my and my children's memory about what tools we can use in different situations.

The Great!

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

the way my child knows how to brush off a mean comment by "throwing it in the imaginary trash can" and reaffirming her self worth.

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

The fact that it applies to adults as well as kids. We all need to know how to protect our physical and emotional boundaries.

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

bring these wonderful ideas to every child and every adult in the US.
