Breaking up Our Kid Groups – KFPS

BREAKING UP OUR KIDS GROUP

Little Fruits (Ages 4-5)

          Kids coming into KFPS who are between the ages of 4-5 will be part of our little fruit group.   Every one of our little fruits will receive 1. a copy of our kids book “Mommy Daddy Troubles” 2.  KFPS’ Amazing book of coupons, 3. Our KFPS, “Kids First” Certificate.

Our kids  will first sit down and play an “identify emotion” card game.  Kids will compete and “match emotion cards” until all cards are off the table.

Little fruits will meet together for a round table discussion to talk about how the problems little fruit faced when his parent’s divorced.”  Our kids talk through Little Fruit’s adventures and answer the question – what gives me courage?.

Kids are taught how to look at calendar, how to use sticker’s to mark when it is time to see Mom and Dad (visitation periods).  Kids taught different ways to talk to parent’s – skype, facetime, etc..  Kids also taught how to take the path to courage game on our kidsfirstparentssecond.org website.

Parent’s Note:  We would ask that our Little Fruit kids come to our seminars with the following materials:

 

  1. A Large Adult Shoe Box\similar dimension
  2. Favorite Pictures of Parents’\Family Member

RAINBOW GROUP (6-10)

Kids coming into KFPS who are between the ages of 6-10 will be part of our rainbow group. Our Rainbows will be provided our kids-n-divorce manual, our kids first certificate as well as our amazing book of coupons.

We ask our rainbow group to draw pictures, and at times mimic the faces shown in emotion card games.  We teach our rainbows to identify emotions so they can understand and manage their own feelings of anger, sadness and worry.

The first part of this seminar is lo teach kids what to do with their emotions of anger, sadness and worry.  The second part of our kids’ seminar includes a divorce survival workshop and talks about what it will take to follow “the yellow brick road” living with purpose and finding individual happiness.

Say it Loud, Say it Proud!

Pre-Teens (11-`14)

          Our pre-teens (11-14) will be asked the most of by any other group at KFPS.  It is this age group that we are our group to open up – say how they are feeling with a loud clear voice.  We will be engaging this group in varying activities.  These kids will be able to voice thought and feeling through different forms of expression whether it be through skits, song, poems or writing.    The best skits/songs and poems and/or letters will be posted on our KFPS youtube channel, and available for viewing by the general public – provided parental consent is provided.

Message:    Bring your talents, make a statement, change your world.

SPECIAL PROGRAM

I’m just a Kid! (6-11)

       The “I’m Just a Kid” portion of our seminar is one which in we would ask be requested in advance of our seminar. “I’m Just a kid” is a specific program to help deal with situations when kids exposed to inappropriate behavior by parent’s in a divorce.. We do not want every child to take this portion of the KFPS kid’s seminar. Children attending our special class will be provided a special “I’m Just a kid” survival manual.

“I’m just a kid” helps children know what to say when they hear hurtful comments about mom or dad.  I’m Just a Kid  helps kids understand that they are neither a 1.  Secret Agent, 2.  Messenger or 3.  Master Spy. “I’m just a kid” give’s kids a way to ask their parents to respect their wishes to love both of their parents equally.

“I’m just a kid” promotes our concept of a “Kids Zone” –  one in which the children’s relationship with both parent’s is respected and not interfered with.
