At the Women's March LA

Posted on January 26, 2017 by Amazing Capes

With over 750,000 in attendance the women's march in Los Angeles was an overwhelming show of superheroes. Without a single arrest, the crowds illustrated the popular voice of our nation and the ethos and common ground so many of us share. Overwhelmingly so, it was a great day for expressing good over evil, enthusiasm over apathy and positivity above despair.  As events unfold in the days ahead, let's always remind ourselves that we the people, have power. 

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek. -Barack Obama

Starting School For the First Time Can be Scary; Turn it Into an Adventure

Posted on July 28, 2015 by Amazing Capes

Do you remember your first day of school? I remember those early days of Kindergarten as having the feeling of walking on eggshells... For starters, there was the word that shall not be named: P R I N C I P A L  {SHUDDER!} that my 5 year old self prayed I would NEVER EVER have to face. Remember THAT KID who saw Mr. Nesbit and never came back? During nap time, they would turn out the lights in Mrs. Brown's classroom at Weaverville Primary School, and I remember trying to breathe so quietly; I didn't want to draw any attention to myself. Eventually, as strangers became friends, as my teacher became familiar, and I learned to separate the fact from fiction in The Harrowing Tales of What Happens in the Principal's Office- going to school evolved into a daily adventure, rather than a daunting tip-toe each day into the frightful setting of an unfamiliarity. 

I can only imagine that for all those small children with ever-so-active imaginations who will be starting school for the first time this year, that many of them feel somewhat scared or intimidated by the encroaching school year. We believe an Amazing Cape is an incredible gift to help any child feel more powerful and in control of their new school year experience. Along with a natural ability to develop cognitive learning powers, a cape becomes an active tool to help those malleable minds feel more confident and empowered. YES! You little one, can tackle this new adventure of going to school! Let's kick fears to the curb and share with these young minds all the adventure that awaits a lifetime of learning. 

Here is a link to an article with more tips on preparing your child for the school year :)
