The Can Do Kids Club is a continuous program of encouragement and support for children and their families, based upon the highly successful book A for Attitude and associated resources, which have proven over the past 19 years to be excellent tools for raising resilient children.

This program provides strategies, tools and activities to help reduce anxiety, boost self-esteem and help children focus on and develop their potential. Families are encouraged to commit, on a regular basis, to read the books and work together on the exercises.

This initiative was launched with a celebration involving talented Can Do kids, on Friday 22nd April at SPAC theatre, Rosebud Secondary College, in Victoria. Two more Can Do Kids events have been run and what we learned in running these events, helped us create templates and formats to assist other groups around Australia to hold their own Can Do events and promote resilience in their communities.

Attitude Books Project

Every school has the opportunity to register as a Community Funded school and invite parents, friends, local businesses and community organisations to sponsor one or more children to receive their very own personal copy of A for Attitude for just $10 per copy – that’s way less than the RRP.

If you’re a Can Do parent, please invite your child’s school to sign up for this campaign to receive books in 2018.

Hello I’m Hannah,

I am 13 years old and a Year 8 student at Dromana Secondary College. I love singing and all things music and I am looking forward to helping and encouraging young children to become happy, confident and resilient kids.

As a singer, having a positive attitude and confidence has enabled me to perform at events such as our Can Do Kids concert. I hope to inspire other children to have the confidence to get up and have a go! Whether it be singing, sport or school activities … when you’re a Can Do Kid you can do anything you put your mind to!

Being a member of the CDKC means that you’ll first receive a parcel of Can Do goodies in your letter box on joining, then every fortnight (even through the holidays) you’ll have activities and an ‘I Can’ card, sent to your very own letterbox. And you’ll also receive a birthday card on your special day.

The A for Attitude book, along with fun activity sheets and cards provide the inspiration and tools required to learn these skills for life.

We look forward to hearing your stories and feedback. So ask Mum, Dad, or your carer to please email and tell us:

  • what you like about the kids club (and it’s ok to tell us what you don’t like too).
  • what has been helpful for you and why.

Every two months, you can tell us which page in A for Attitude you’d like to have as a poster on your wall and we will send you a Pdf of that page to print out.a-for-attitude-can-do-kids-club-logo-horizontal

We hope you will join our club and invite your friends along as well and we look forward to sending you your Kids Club Welcome Pack in the mail very soon!

Bye for now,

Hannah,
Kids Club Captain
