Course Description

Did you know up to 30 percent of children experience some form of childhood sexual abuse? This isn’t just some statistic. This is real kids, with real lives and real aspirations and futures.


Luckily, our Safe4Kids Parents’ Information course will provide YOU with the tools and the confidence to talk to your children about their safety in both their online (and offline!) worlds.


Nobody wants to EVER imagine any kind of abuse happening to their child - it’s too abhorrent to even think about, right?


But the fact is abuse DOES happen, and if we don’t know how to talk to our children about it – then we are simply not prepared enough as parents.


Do you know what to do (or say) if your child discloses some form of abuse? (Don’t worry – we give you these tools in the course!)


Our course is presented in a sensitive and easy to understand way, so that you are empowered and confident to approach this topic with your family (it’s a serious topic, but there’s a better way to approach all of this so it doesn’t become too dark for you)



We know, by breaking this huge subject down to short, bite-size videos, you’ll:


  • Feel confident talking to your children and your family about this sensitive topic
  • Act appropriately and effectively when dealing with a disclosure of abuse
  • Teach your children how to have informed conversations with you about abuse and pornography (no more uncomfortable avoidances about this – we’ll give you these skills!)


As you know, one of the most challenging aspects of being a parent is preparing your child for the potential challenges that exist in the world out there J


The thing is though, how do you achieve this without scaring them, wrapping them in bubble wrap or providing them with too much information? It’s a fine balancing act that a lot of parents find daunting.


We understand the uncertainty that parents feel about this essential but confronting topic.

In this short, self-study online course; we are going provide you with the skills, techniques and confidence that you need to comfortably and appropriately educate your children about body safety.


You CAN confidently navigate this subject with your family in a safe and nurturing way.


Our Safe4Kids Parents’ Information course videos will equip you to:


  • Identify the benefits of child abuse prevention education
  • Communicate to your child the importance of Consent and recognising ‘Safe Touches’ and ‘Unsafe Touches’
  • Identify the importance of the need for children to  ‘Risk on Purpose’

Testimonial


“It was a pleasure to attend Holly-ann’s parenting information session. I thought I knew about Protective Behaviours before the workshop but was shocked to realise how little I actually did know. My kids love the books I purchased; they are a great way to start talking about the subject with them. I urge every parent to attend. You will not be disappointed.” Kathy F. Hamilton Hill, Western Australia
