Enjoy an introduction to People Safety Skills with your young child.
Help your child learn how to handle a friend saying something mean,
check first before touching something unsafe, move away from someone
throwing sand or doing something else that could be hurtful, and
get help from you effectively, even when you are busy. A few simple
but powerful skills help kids notice, stop, and get help with
potential safety problems like these and many others.
Through storytelling, puppets, and interactive role-plays, children
3-5 and their adults will be introduced to age-appropriate ways young
people can:
• Check first with adults if things seems unsafe
• Stop unwanted touch
• Be safe with hurtful words
• Set strong boundaries
• Use their voice as a safety tool
• Get help from busy adults
• Move out of reach of a potential problem
• Say ‘No’ or ‘Stop’ clearly and respectfully
This workshop is appropriate for children 3-5 who:
* are comfortable in a group of other children
* are comfortable following directions from a teacher
* enjoy sitting for 10-15 minutes for interactive presentations, like a library story hour
Older siblings may also enroll, but the examples and stories will be geared to younger children
