Staying Safe

Staying Safe 1

We hope that the lessons over the next few weeks allow you to open up some important discussions with your kids. We will be looking at safety at home, outside and online. But this week we want to just start introducing the idea of 'safety' and what that means!

 

We know that having these discussions will:

  • Reduce the likelihood of your child entering into an unsafe situation.
  • Demonstrate how to respond to an unsafe situation.
  • Increase a child’s sense of confidence and in doing so increases their resiliency.
  • Increase a child’s knowledge of their personal rights i.e. “I have the right to feel safe with people”.
  • Increase the likelihood that the child will speak out if they feel unsafe and tell someone they trust.
