Single Parenting Workshop
Thursday, March 20, 2014 from 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM (PDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
The purpose of this training is to provide child sexual abuse prevention, practical tools, and encouragement for the demands of today's single parent. Today, one-third of American children - a total of 15 million - are being raised without a father. Nearly five million more children live without a mother. Our emphasis is on reducing the inherent risks of child sexual abuse, which is statistically higher in single parent homes. The increased risk is not necessarily caused by single-parenthood itself, but a combination of economic pressures, family instability, and conflict between parents. A single parent with adequate resources may provide a stable, nurturing home in which children thrive just as well as those who have two parents. On the other hand, a single parent who is struggling emotionally, physically, and financially with little time, energy, or skill for parental duties might increase a child's risk for a variety of problems. By raising your awareness of the risks, along with providing solutions for reducing them, our goal is to equip you for the safekeeping of your children.
When & Where
This workshop is designed to educate adults about the risks of child sexual abuse and to establish a plan of protection for each child. It seeks to remove the “responsibility to protect” from the child, and place it on informed adults who accept the responsibility to be alert, watchful and prevention/protection oriented. Prevention is the answer! DVD and Facilitator Led.
