Editorial Reviews

About the Author

"This is a book I wish my kids had had when they got older and started to be out in the world without me!" says author Irene van der Zande. Irene has been featured as a child safety expert by USA Today, CNN, and The Wall Street Journal. She is also the author of "Bullying: What Adults Need to Know and Do to Keep Kids Safe"; of "The Kidpower Book for Caring Adults: Personal Safety, Self-Protection, Confidence, and Advocacy for Young People"; and of the younger kids' "Kidpower Safety Comics". In addition, Irene is the founder of Kidpower.org, a non-profit organization that has helped to protect over two million people of all ages and abilities from bullying, sexual abuse, abduction, and other violence since 1989 through providing workshops, consultation, and educational resources.

More About the Author

In 1985, when her family was young, Irene van der Zande protected a group of small children, including her own two, from a man who was threatening to kidnap them. Even though she stopped this attack by yelling and by ordering a bystander to help, this frightening experience left her with a determination to do everything in her power to keep her own kids safe - and all children safe- and finally, to help everyone, everywhere, learn how to use their own power to take charge of their emotional and physical safety.

Today, Irene is an international expert in personal safety, a prolific author, and an inspiring trainer. As the founder and executive director of Kidpower Teenpower Fullpower International, known as Kidpower for short, Irene has been a tireless leader in protecting and empowering children, teens, and adults around the world for a quarter of a century.

Kidpower is a nonprofit leader in child protection and personal safety that has protected over 2 million people of all ages and abilities from bullying, violence, and abuse through educational resources, in-person workshops, and consulting. Kidpower's newest global initiative is the "One Million Safer Kids campaign, which has the goal of making at least one million young people safer from bullying, violence, and abuse through greater awareness, action, and skills by July 1, 2016.

The skills in this book can prevent serious problems, but they are fun to practice with the Kidpower approach. Definitely a great tool for talking about and practicing stranger safety and skills to help prevent abuse and molestation -- without talking about abuse or molestation.

Format: Paperback
The KidPower comics helped us SO MUCH with our kids. 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!!!!

Format: Paperback
I'm a new parent of a three month old, so we haven't gotten to the book for older kids yet! But I've read it myself and I love the way the skills in this book are essentially the same as the skills in the book for younger kids, but the language meets pre-teens at their own level. Too many safety-oriented books I've seen either talk down to this age group, or introduce topics that they might not be ready for. As always, I think Kidpower does a wonderful job of teaching skills without focusing on the potentially scary or dangerous situations when kids might need them. It's a great balance between acknowledging that there are problems in the world, and giving pre-teens skills they can use to face those problems head-on!
