Your guide to events in Nelson, New Zealand
Saturday 16th June 2012
In this special programme, children and their adults have an opportunity in small groups divided by age to practice Everyday Safety Skills together.
Using games, role-plays, and stories relevant to younger children, we’ll practice skills to: Be and act aware; Check with Adults if anything seems unsafe; Show awareness and confidence; Move away from possible problems; Use voice as a safety tool; Set clear boundaries; Deal with other kids poking, pushing, grabbing; Use safety plans if you are lost in a store, park or library; Get help from busy adults – and persist!
From a participant : “I was afraid to talk to my children about the bad things that other people might do to them. I didn¹t want to scare them or destroy their trust. Your workshop gave us a common language for working on what my kids need to know in a way which was empowering for all of us, and to my great surprise, it was fun!”
