It’s almost August and millions of kids, teachers, and parents are preparing for back-to-school time. I’m an educator, but also a parent of six and a grandparent to five young girls. As a teacher, I strive to meet my students just where they are. Real connections with kids take time, energy, lots of patience, and great love. I’ve learned that passion and heartfelt care for kids go further toward real learning than any individual lesson I can offer as a teacher. Kids will strive to meet expectations when they feel understood, respected, loved, and cared for in their world.
As educators we need to know our kids stories to reach, and effectively teach, our kids well!
As a parent, I understand the challenges facing the youngest of my six kids as he prepares to enter middle school next month. He is courageously dealing with anxiety after the sudden death of his oldest sister 2 years ago. He is doing much better as he learns to recognize anxiety, but he has to implement practical tools when he finds anxiety rising. I’m so proud of his own resiliency and courage to deal with the sudden death of a sibling at such a young age. My heart of gratitude extends to the amazing teachers (and other adults) who have supported him in his efforts to continue to share his talents, love, and light with the world. He is my personal “Super Kid” and I’m honored to be a part of the Super Kids Movement!
The SUPER KIDS MOVEMENT includes a NEW book (The Super Kids Guide to Conquering the Every Day), a personal creed for kids to internalize, and engaging activity resources for kids that parents and teachers can use to gain insights as we seek to help ALL kids embrace their internal lights to SHINE in the world.
SUPER KIDS MOVEMENT: EMBRACE EVERY KID’S LIGHT IN THE WORLD!

The Super Kids Manifesto is a creed for all kids from the book, The Super Kids Activity Guide to Conquering Every Day, by Dayna Abraham. I had a chance to listen as Dayna Abraham shared the following:
“Kids are constantly being told they aren’t good enough, not smart enough, not calm enough, just plain and simple…not enough.
What would happen if instead of telling kids they are not enough, we changed the way we saw our children and we changed their inner language?
My new book, The Superkids Activity Guide to Conquering Every Day, is aimed to empower ALL kids to speak up, share their superpowers and learn why they do the things they do so they can advocate for themselves!!
The book has a manifesto that I stand behind 100%. I believe all children should believe these things about themselves and often wish I had believed these things to be true as a child myself.
This is a small excerpt:
Go ahead and say it, so you believe it: I am a SUPERKID.
There, didn’t that feel good? Go ahead and say it one more time, just to make sure it sinks in: I am a SUPERKID.
Before you start to think of all the reasons you can’t possibly be a superkid, I want to stop you. You see, even the most famous rock stars have doubt and don’t believe in themselves every day. This doesn’t mean they are any less super. And even superheroes have struggles and pitfalls. That doesn’t make them any less super, either. The truth is, despite your struggles, your mistakes, or your bad days…YOU ARE A SUPERKID. The Superkids Manifesto is yours. I want you to own it.”
You are unique.
You are adventurous.
You are spirited.
You are creative.
You are fierce.
You are a SUPERKID.
You are going to conquer the world and I am going to help you every step of the way… ”
