I'm Philip Dale Smith (mostly known as Dale). I’ve spent a lifetime working with kids and families. A founder of youth camps in three states and Canada, award-winning children’s picture book author and novelist, I conduct school programs for children and Every Kid a Winner™ seminars for adults. I’ve been with untold thousands of children in schools, youth camps, rallies, and retreats.

I’ve discovered that children:
      • Long to be loved
      • Need to believe in themselves
      • Hunger for affection
      • Yearn to feel that they count
      • Want boundaries, order and structure (believe it or not!)
      • Hope, almost desperately, that they have a bright future ahead.

Most of us long to see those dreams fulfilled for our children. But many don’t have a clue as to how to make it happen. All of us struggle with society’s constant obstacles. This resource site will help.

Let us help you invest where it counts: in family. We can invest our time, energy and money in the family, or we can invest it elsewhere, sometimes telling ourselves that “I’m doing this for the family.” I invite you to listen to a story about a dad in Florida who learned the distinction between investing “for” the family, and investing “in” the family. What a bold and wise choice that father and husband made! It will pay off for generations to come. Turn up the audio and listen....

Here's the story:

This web site is about kids--big ones, little ones, and precious teenie-tiny ones; your kids, my kids, and the kids of others. It’s about the “big people” who share their world. It’s about inspiration, knowledge, and tools we can use to make a difference in the lives of children. It’s about building and being a part of an exciting network of tens of thousands of people, whp care deeply about kids. And it is ongoing resource for developing needed understanding skills.

Our mission is to equip and inspire key people: parents, grandparents, brothers, sisters, teachers, coaches, scout leaders, Sunday school teachers, and others who can help children reach their full potential.

Can we do it? Can we prepare children to be intelligent, healthy, and secure? Can we help them be curious, exuberant, and yet disciplined? Can they be socially adept and fun to be with—and more? Sure! With input from many, including you readers, we’ll make both this site and the "Every Kid a Winner™ E-zine" enjoyable, exciting, and helpful.

Watch for the promise I’ll make to your and your family at the end of this letter.
