Kidango receives grant

Submitted By Shirley Ng

Kidango received a $15,000 grant from the Kaiser Permanente Community Benefit Program in Southern Alameda to implement a series of workshops to promote positive family dynamics and interactions for families with young children.

Through these workshops, parents/caregivers who need support in handling child behavioral concerns will learn positive, non-violent approaches to promote their children's optimal social-emotional development. This series of workshops was developed by the Center on the Social and Emotional Foundations for Early Learning.

Kidango anticipates that the young children whose parents/caregivers participate in this program will also show an increase in their capacity to empathize with others, show greater impulse control, and an increase in their ability to utilize conflict negation techniques in their interactions with others. Their children will benefit as their parents/caregivers teach them peaceful conflict resolution skills that will impact their relationships for the rest of their lives, helping to end cycles of abuse and violence
