The Power Up Power Down Journal - Expanded Digital Download Edition - was written by educators and parents to accelerate children on their own path to being the best version of themselves. It helps kids to express joy and frustration, inspire imagination, build confidence and recenter in times of commotion.
The 58 full-color pages include engaging exercises, activities, questions, prompts, illustrations, and action items to spur self-discovery. Based on years of experience both in the classroom and at home interacting with kids about the underlying emotions that drive their actions and that impact their outcomes in all walks of life.
As parents or educators, we sometimes know exactly what to say or to ask, at exactly the right time, to get our child or student to either open up about something affecting them or to guide them to express something that they are struggling to express. Other times, a question gets a blank stare, a word of advice gets dismissed, a gentle reminder triggers an explosion, and we despair.
Power Up Power Down can help bridge gaps and unlock feelings to make communication with your child can grow even deeper and richer. Ultimately, the self-understanding and mutual understanding that arises will lead to improved confidence and help each child on their path to becoming the best version of themselves.
We know this to be true because we've experimented for years with our own kids, whether in class or at home. Edited by the creators of InspireMyKids, the largest online community of inspiration for kids, Power Up Power Down, can be an essential tool for kids success in the classroom, at home and everywhere in between.
