Happy National Super Hero Day!

Who’s your favorite superhero? Everyone has a superhero they look up to whether it be Clark Kent as Super Man, Wonder Woman, PJ Masks or Underdog.
We’re often captivated by their superhuman powers, stand-out personalities, inherent character values and the exciting life of fiction. Superheroes are probably known most for their courage.
In fact, many people associate courage with a heroic act or a brave deed. Something magical you turn on during bold, daring or fearless moments.
But courage isn’t always impressive and powerful.
Sometimes courage is a recognition of inner strength, integrity and honesty.
Courage can be as simple as standing up for yourself or a friend, or doing the right thing even when it’s not the easy choice. Courage can also mean trying something new, or showing empathy to your child during a moment of imperfection.
You don’t have to live in a comic book to be a superhero. At Kiddie Academy, we know a lot of parents who are everyday superheroes, too.
National Superhero Day was created to celebrate both our fictional superhero favorites, as well as the real superheroes in our everyday lives.
