Why a Lion
The lion is the symbol of Kidpacity. Throughout childhood stories, we see images of the lion as cowardly and sheepish, or aggressive and angry. But as these fables and morals unfold, we learn that the lion is hiding something underneath the surface. The lion isn’t angry – he’s in pain. The lion isn’t cowardly – he’s shy. What we learn is that there are always factors just below the surface that influence the lion’s behaviour. Factors that weren’t obvious, or we couldn’t see. When we learn what the lion is going through, though, we’re able to see the truth behind the behaviour.
Kidpacity was created to help you find the truth behind your child’s behaviour. Before you begin working with your Kidpacity kit, you and your child should give your lion a name. As you work through the activities, your lion will guide you and be by your side. The lion will help you and your child find your bravery, overcome obstacles, and learn to talk and think through challenges together. So order your kit today, name your lion, and let’s get started.
