Big Kid Day… the Proposal

I believe there is a formative age group who needs a boost. Kids ages 5 through 10 are often overlooked until they act out.

I’d like to propose a Big Kid Day. It would coordinate with the very first day of school every September (or late August).

Special stickers could be handed out with a “Hurray for Big Kids!” theme.

  • Big kids help out little kids in need.
  • Big kids help parents with chores.
  • Big kids save older folks steps by being “go-fors”.
  • Big Kids have Big Kid Power!

That’s right! Kids from 5 through 10 can become super heroes if we encourage them.

                                 Big Kid Power

Not so long ago

I was just like you.

A little bit nervous

About what to do?

All was so different,

Kids everywhere.

I’d heard about bullies,

I hoped they weren’t there.

Some kids were shouting,

All of them tall,

I kept to myself

And walked down the hall.

One Big Kid stopped

And gave me a grin,

He walked me to class

And helped me get in.

Now on the first day

Of school ever year,

I look for a small one

With eyes full of fear.

I remember my moment,

Now I’m the Big Kid.

And pass on the kindness

That my Big Kid did.
