Who Do Kids Admire? What Do They Worry About? And What Superpower Would They Choose?

It has been my great joy and honor to partner with Highlights for Children this week to launch the results of their 2018 State of the Kid Survey. This year, they polled 2,000 U.S. children, ages 6-12, and asked questions like “What do you worry about?” “What do you like about yourself?” and “Who do you admire?” We have learned a great deal from listening to children and discussing what might be the takeaways for kids’ top influencers – parents and teachers.

Don’t miss these video shorts of kids answering these questions. My favorite is when they are asked, “What super-power would you choose?” And then, check out my conversation with Highlights Editor-In-Chief Christine French Cully, a genuine advocate for the importance of listening to children’s voices, about what we can learn from children.




For more videos, takeaways, and other helpful insights on the survey results, check out the Highlights for Children State of the Kid site.

  1. Jen – Sorry about the intrusion. Your Dad checked the grammar and said it was OK. I can only think that I have been out of the loop for so long now [ 11 years ] that rules have changed . They do you know. Spelling changes, acceptable language changes and so does grammar. So I will stay out of that “stuff” from now on. Have even suggested to your Dad that he hire someone more up to date to edit for him but he also uses “Grammarly[?]” to check me so he feels that he’s OK. Sorry to poke my nose in where it doesn’t belong. Love you, Ma
