We were excited to take our 3-yr-old daughter to her first Starting Strong Kidpower workshop over the summer. I read the Kidpower book as part of my interests in teaching and later as a soon-to-be parent. So we had been talking about some of the ideas around stopping mean words, sharing and taking turns, etc. But then we took the class and she just blossomed. We also got the comic book and it became a favorite right away. The cartoons are understandabe even to a pre-reader. The skills are presented step by step. And her fascination with some of the stories has made things like making safety plans to avoid getting lost in the store AP much easier. She loves to practice and she loves all her various "powers" to be safe. Kidpower has made conversations about worries so much easier and interesting rather than scary for all of us. And our ability to advocate for her is so much cleaner - we have clear language for describing problems in respectful ways that other parents pick up in and start to use as well!
