Absolutely Incredible Kid Day

This year, we are hoping to make AIKD bigger and better. Hopefully, youth receive letters at home, in school and then in after-school programs.  .

Absolutely Incredible Kid Day – participating in AIKD is a simple, meaningful way to let youth know how much they are appreciated. Words are powerful – young lives are changed by this day and simple act of your encouragement, love, and kindness.  Letters or notes can serve as tangible reminders of how wonderful and special a child is…and we have seen in so many cases that children will re-visit these items so often in years to come.

Ideas For Absolutely Incredible Kid Day on MARCH 21, 2019:

  • Write a personal note or specific compliment to the special kids in your life – CLICK HERE for official AIKD stationary or make your own! That letter, text, email, video, or phone call can go such a long way!
  • Go out of your way to be mindful in offering extra words of encouragement and admiration to those children throughout the day
  • Inspire random and anonymous acts of kindness with those children
  •  Leave post-its with special messages everywhere for those children to find throughout the day
  • Utilize social media to challenge other adults to take part in AIKD
  • Share AIKD ideas and photos from the day on school on social media.

Look for the Facebook Challenge – Do you accept the challenge to tell three kids in your life how absolutely incredible they are?

Culture Reframed: Solving the Public Health Crisis of the Digital Age

Babysitting is available for youth ages 3-14

Presenter: Dr. Gail Dines
Solving the Public Health Crisis of the Digital Age.
Recognizing and addressing hypersexualized media and pornography as “the public health crisis of the digital age.”

Culture Reframed responds to the pornography crisis by providing education and support to promote healthy child and youth development, relationships, and sexuality. Research-driven programs teach parents and those in the helping professions how to recognize and respond to the role pornography can play in sexual violence, unhealthy relationships, negative self-image, sexual dysfunction, sexually transmitted infections, among other issues. It aims to empower participants to create positive and lasting change in families and communities.
