I've seen the work done by SFKI and it's really an inpiration, it brings hope that a better future is possible. It's not about money, governments, spirituality can change everything.

I can only say what I have personally seen and that is that the kids are amazing. They are all so thoughtful, generous, pleasant, kind, sweet...and more. They are great kids and the program is better than the public schools.

My two girls, ages 9 and 6, have taken the SFK courses. They really enjoyed it and while there was a lot of play, I know they got the principles. They mention different things they learned in the class when things get tough, or when my wife and I don't act with 100% human dignity or respect, they point that out to us. So now, we have to be on our toes :)

Great, great classes - highly recommended for children 6+. In fact, I learned quite a bit from the classes about how to work in a positive way with my ego and no let life bring me down.

SFK is an Exceptional Program for All Children. As a Therapudic Foster Mom, I work with traumatized children that exhibit inappropriate and extremely reactive behaviors.
SFK has helped my kids immensely by creating a platform where they can actually learn and feel how their behavior affects others including the residual feelings within them after their display of selfish reactive Behavior.
SFK has exceptional materials, workbooks and projects that help create a fun and Lasting bond between the child and the parent. Their videos are short, direct and to the point in a manner that all kids "Get it" right away. Sometimes I need to stop the video because my kids blurt out immediately a similar instance that they have experienced while viewing the topic on the video at hand, lol.. I know they are listening and connecting! My children have taken the opportunity during project time to open up and share their true inner feelings without any fear of repercussions nor consequences. Sometimes children have a fear of sharing their true inner thoughts and feelings. They may think that you won't like them, or love them less, but the SFK Program create a safe environment for them to open up and Audit their thoughts and their actions.
One of my favorite lessons is when Ari calls his best friend less than kind words. So I have the children just like in the video, draw me a full-page heart and as they share words that they have called their friends, stupid, dumb, jit, idiot, I hate you, fat boy, etc... as they share these words I have them tear off a piece of the heart. Once that Heart is in little pieces I give them scotch tape and tell him to put the heart back together. Well, the look on their faces is Priceless! They not only see the impossibility but they feel the pain they have caused others. Naturally when they attempt to tape the Heart back together, they realize that it will never be the same! They "Get It"!

This on line program is remarkable. I use it regularly as a tool to help guide my daughter when she faces challenges. There have been moments when she's recognized someone helping another, which she knows can lead to the ripple effect. Children (and adults!) can learn how to manage their emotions and why treating others with dignity and respect is of paramount importance.
