Self-Defense 101: Dealing With Mean Words
kidpower-trash-can

Self-defense can mean all kinds of things — including learning to protect your heart from hurtful name-calling!

That’s why we love the Kidpower Trash Can! It’s how our friends at Go Girls!┬ádeal with mean words at their amazing camps and it really helps.

Here’s how it works so you can practice with your friends or family:

Someone calls you ugly.
Catch the words, throw ‘em away.
Say, “I’m beYOUtiful.”

Someone says, “No one likes you.”
Catch the words, throw ‘em away.
Say, “I am so likable — and lovable, too.”

Someone says, “You’re soooo weird.”
Catch the words, throw ‘em away.
Say, “I am unique. No one else in the world is exactly like me — and that’s the way I like it.”

Try it and then tell us:
What do YOU do when someone calls you a mean name?
