Two new curriculum books released just this month, " 15 People Safety Group Lessons " and " 10 People Safety Assignments ," offer bullying and violence prevention lessons that are easy to prepare, fun to teach and learn with cartoon-illustrated lesson plans and student assignments. The fact that they are in both English and Spanish is a big help to creating a common language about safety problems, since many of our students come from Spanish-speaking families. This will be especially helpful in teaching martial artists and other teachers how to use the Kidpower teen and adult program to teach self-defense in their schools.
All of these books and more from Kidpower International are available on Amazon and from Kidpower's website. All income from books sales goes to help Kidpower International, a nonprofit organization, cover the cost of publication and of providing educational resources.

Respond promptly when your baby cries. Soothe, nurture, cuddle, and reassure her so that you build positive brain circuitry in the limbic area of the brain, which is involved in emotions. Your calm holding and cuddling, and your day-to-day engagement with your baby, signal emotional security to the brain.
Build trust by being attentive and focused. When your child is playing, resist the temptation to check Instagram. Instead, get on the ground and spend time interacting with him.

This is a wonderful way to practice categorization. Toddlers learn that stuffed animals have one place to go for "night-night" time; cars, trucks, and other vehicles also have their special storage place.
