As a mother of 7 children, 3 biological and 4 bonus(step) children and a grandmother of 9, I have used the tools and skills from the Keeping Kids Safe for years. I provided these worksheets and booklets for my children when they were young which gave them great coping skills in the trials and challenges they faced while they were young and impressionable. They have since used these same worksheets and booklets to assist their children (my grandchildren) to cope and learn valuable tools that assist them in their journey. These books and worksheets truly have assisted in shifting family patterns of addiction and abuse. They have been life changing for me and my family.
The Keep Kids Safe worksheets and training has helped to positively improve the behavior and demeanor of my 3 children. I am the father of 3 boys, ages 2, 8, and 10 and each of them use the teachings of this program to cope and deal with everyday issues kids have to deal with. Specifically, my 10 year old son, Koltyn, is very emotional and wasn’t handling some things that didn’t go his way very well. He would be angry and look everywhere but within for answers. After completing these worksheets a few times, he doesn’t seem to look elsewhere to blame others and is much more accepting of things he has no control over. My 8 year old, Kolby, is not as emotional and an easy going boy. The worksheets help him to express his feelings better and force him to share more than he may have been comfortable with in the past. He can actually teach and explain the program and help others with the worksheets.
