Keeping Kids Safe

Aug 17, 2007
We can teach you to teach your kids to keep themselves safe when you are not around.

That's right. Teach your kids to keep themselves safe. When you are not around.

You will want to pay very close attention to those words. The words are the key: keep themselves safe.

That's right, again. Mom and Dad, its not about how safe they are when you are around.

Pay very close attention to this concept.

As long as you are around them your kids are pretty safe. It's when they are alone, walking home from school, shopping at the mall or even in your front yard, anytime you are not with them, that they are most vulnerable.

Of course it's about predators but it's also about bullies.

It's also about:

Fire safety
Water safety
Pool safety
Bicycle safety
Roller blade safety
Halloween safety
Sports safety

The list goes on. But the real point is, can your children can keep themselves safe when you are not around? If they can, they can be stronger individuals and you can worry and stress out less.

Keeping your kid safe starts with safety from sexual predators and bullies at school. A great and effective safety program teaches kids to learn for themselves how to stay safe if Mom and Dad are not around. It also should help parents reinforce safety techniques at home to make sure they are learned and understood well.

Things like confidence and mental focus are real safety techniques. Kids as young as four years old can use them and be less of a target for predators and bullies. Kids with good mental focus and self confidence are less of a target.

Kids with these qualities tend to spot potential danger early and stay away from it before they get involved or trapped into it.

There are also techniques, we call ours Getaways, that kids can learn that allow them to escape the grasp of any adult in the horrible event that they get grabbed.

It does not get any better than this for a parent.

Now For The Truth. Now its time for you to pay even closer attention because in order to keep your kids safe you have to be on top of things as an adult and a parent.

Working with kids to learn safety techniques is one thing as we teach them to improve their self confidence and self image. If they appear to be happy and confident your kids will be less of a target for predators or bullies.

You, as a parent, can't fake this. You need to be confident and centered in order to help your kids be the same. You need to lead by example.

So, we involve parents in everything we teach. We improve families and kids together in order to keep them safe.

You need to take care of yourself first before you can take care of you kids. Are you a positive person? Do you feel good about yourself? Are you happy, centered and focused as an adult?

Focus, improve yourself, then reinforce it in your kids for safer kids.
