It is an evidence informed, research based, and age-appropriate child sexual and physical abuse prevention program. Each presentation lasts about 45 minutes and includes an age appropriate script followed by a 10 - 20 minute movie.
Each grade level is introduced to the "safety rule". The "safety rule" is taught using stories and scenarios that children may encounter on a daily basis such as bullies, peer pressure or exploitation by friends/family. The "safety rule" encourages assertive responses, whether it is used with strangers or someone the child knows.
Children are also taught about different type of touching. They will hear stories related to different types of touch and then learn to apply the "safety rule" to those situations. Decision-making skills and assertive responses are taught at each grade level. In addition, children learn that these types of touching problems can happen with strangers, acquaintances, friends or family members.
Our overall goal for this program is to prevent and to lessen the number of children being abused.
