The Kidpower Confident Kids Safety Lessons provide 15 social-emotional “People Safety’ lessons to enable children and youth to prevent and solve problems with people; develop safe and strong relationships, and take charge of their safety. The Positive Peer Lessons help to stop bullying – and to create cultures of safety and respect in families, schools, and youth organizations.
This resource helps teachers and other staff integrate teaching Kidpower safety strategies and skills into their daily activities. The Positive Peer lessons are especially important in creating a common language with students to help prevent bullying.
