A really good tool for providing a basis for discussing a whole range of challenging subjects for youngsters. Also really good for providing simple strategies kids can use to keep themselves safe. Although written in the US this worked really well for in the UK for discussing issues with my 5 and 11 year old.

Format: Paperback
There's a huge amount of useful information in this slim book. It works on two levels - the simple drawings and easy to follow stories are attractive to children, and the separate explanatory text makes it easy for their adults to ensure that the children understand how and when to use the safety rules. It's the kind of stuff that you think children ought to know (What do I do if a stranger talks to me? How do I get help if I'm being picked on in the playground? What do I do if I don't like how someone touches me?). The sad thing is that kids are still being bullied, abused and abducted so we need to help them by teaching them skills that give them the best chance of staying safe. But it tends to either not get taught, or adults scare kids without giving them the skills they need to become safer. This comic gives adults a brilliant and fun tool for teaching and practicing these skills with the children they care for.

Age-appropriate tool with important safety skills kids enjoy practicing 25 Sep 2012
By Mom4Good - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have watched even very young children use the skills in this book to stop problems from growing. The Kidpower Trash Can is a big favorite. It gives kids a tool for protecting their feelings when others are saying mean things. The clear stranger safety and 'safety plan for being lost in the store' information has made vacations and trips a lot easier for our family.

Required Reading For All Children and The Parents Who Love Them! 25 Sep 2012
By Rebecca Wolf - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I use the KidPower books with my preschoolers and my own children because the books convey important messages and specific strategies on how to be SAFE in this world. As an educator, I really appreciate the authors who have put this series together. I am sure it has saved countless lives already.

My students love learning various "KidPower" strategies to use when they are feeling angry, afraid, etc. In my preschool class, we read a page or two at a time and really tried to use the KidPower strategies and the language with them. Such as, if someone is teasing me, I have "walk away power" or if I want to hit someone I can use my "hands down power". So kid-friendly and really effective at teaching kids how to be aware of themselves and others in safe ways and how to set boundaries if needed.

Teach your kids how to stand up for themselves 27 Sep 2012
By Cathleen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The KidPower comics helped us SO MUCH when our kids were younger. My son had been very shy, and practicing the activities in the comics helped him be more self confident. On the other hand, my daughter used to walk up to anyone and start chit-chatting. Practicing the activities in the comics taught her some restraint and appropriate boundaries. We had tried to help both kids with these things beforehand, but our advice and cautions never hit home. KidPower, however, spoke their language, and taught them safety skills in simple, non-shaming, and empowering ways. Hooray for KidPower!!!!

New Parent 26 Sep 2012
By New Parent - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
My daughter is only three months old, but we already use language and skills from this book with her all the time! When we have to put her in her car seat or change her diaper, we tell her that we know she doesn't like it, but some things are not a choice, like touch for health and safety! By introducing Kidpower to her at this age and in little bits, we can help build a foundation for the kinds of skills she can use when she faces more complicated or scary situations later in life. I'm so grateful for this book and for Kidpower that I recently gave copies to all the other moms in our mothers group!

Kidpower should be mandatory for every child 26 Sep 2012
By Anatta - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Kidpower is a fantastic resource for the safety of young children. These comics contain practical safety skills that can be practiced and utilized. The boundary-setting skills children can learn in Kidpower are unparalleled. Non-threatening, practical, and effective; you cannot go wrong with anything Kidpower!
