Kids at Hope Day/Week 2016 – Celebrating “10’s”
For this year’s Kids at Hope Day Celebration we want to continue celebrating the importance of “10’s” in the lives of children and youth.
Let’s Celebrate “10’s” for Kids at Hope Day!
We know for a fact that children do better and are more successful when they have adults who strongly believe they will do well. We learned those adults present themselves as 10’s and that is powerful.
Our conclusion was, kids need 10’s in their lives. Anything less than a 10 represents an individual who for some reason cannot accept the belief that all children are capable of success, NO Exceptions! The impact of adult’s beliefs about children, good or bad, are known as the self-fulfilling prophecy or Pygmalion effect and it has been studied for decades. Kids do not need 9’s; 8’s; 7’s; etc. They do not need adults who find reasons they cannot succeed.

I can’t imagine my students in a school where Kids at Hope was not implemented. Students feel safe, relaxed and are motivated to learn and achieve their best.

I love Report Card Day. I can see the kids joy when I’m reading to them their talents & what they could do with them when they get older. I feel good leaving on those days knowing they all went home with that awesome feeling.

I watched with fascination all the cases that came before my case. Everyone (in the court) was so NICE! And caring, and interested and genuinely seeking to help kids-I don’t know why this should be a revolutionary, shocking circumstance to be witnessing, but it was truly something I have never seen in 33 years as an attorney who has frequented juvenile court. . .Not only did the judge smile and make a connection with the kid, the PROSECUTOR made a connection with all of them (the kid and his f…
The motto of Kids at Hope is ‘All Children are Capable of Success, No Exceptions!’ It is essential that community-based agencies strive to live by that bold imperative. But to really believe that and create programming that suggests we believe it, we have to check in with ourselves and view kids a bit differently.

Applying a proven system like Kids at Hope is essential for organizations that work with children to nurture and sustain a culture of collaboration, trust, learning, and high expectations.

…while there are no simple answers regarding how a school develops a culture of academic optimism and high expectations for all students, the Kids at Hope belief system provided remarkable strategies that effectively motivated the entire school community to create optimism and channel behavior toward the accomplishment of high academic goals.

Hearing Rick Miller speak and reading his book, which I keep on my bench, was very eye opening and altered, for the better, how I view the world. I use his Kids at Hope philosophy in court when dealing with kids and parents. I also use his philosophy and keep it in mind when dealing with my own kids and with other adults in my personal life. I also believe that this philosophy will help me when I move to the criminal bench.
