An Ounce of Prevention By Patti Fitzgereld
A very interactive Adults Only seminar focusing on: the myth of stranger-danger & why it doesn’t work with children, understanding how “tricky people” operate, recognizing red flag warning signs and grooming tricks, keeping kids safe around people you know, don’t know, or know a little bit, abduction prevention, establishing boundaries with others, and introducing the safety conversation in a non fearful manner with your kids. We also discuss ways to instill the message safe touches and of being the “boss of their bodies” so children are less vulnerable to the exploits or sexual abuse of a tricky person. In addition, we review common sense solutions to things like playdates, sleepovers, after school activities, public restrooms, etc.

This 90-minute presentation dispels the myths and clarifies the truths surrounding childhood sexual abuse and abduction. Learn who the predators are, what they really count on, and common tricks they use to lure children.
