“It is important not to confuse children with the concept of “strangers.” They do not have the same understanding of who a stranger is as an adult might. The “stranger-danger” message is not effective, as danger to children is often much greater from someone they or you know.
– National Center for Missing and Exploited Children
The subjects of abuse, abduction and bullying are tough to teach in a positive and effective way. This program goes well beyond the “Stranger Danger” idea to provide children with exact responses to real threats. This is done by actively engaging children in the lessons so they retain the information. The programs focus on building confidence and never instilling fear.
Our MISSION & GOAL
Our mission is prevention of child abuse, abductions and bullying through education and confidence building. We want to make children No Easy Target.
Our goal is to build confidence and teach memorable responses so children know what to do if they are touched inappropriately, someone attempts to abduct them, if they are mentally or physically abused by adults or bullied by their peers.
