Community Notification Meetings: What Do I Say to the Children?
What can parents do when a convicted sex offender moves in down the street? This workshop gives specific information about HOW to talk about sexual abuse prevention without scaring children. It focuses not just on how children can protect themselves from a convicted sex offender, but anyone who may abuse or mistreat them. This workshop is usually a supplement to meetings arranged by law enforcement.
1. Recognize the importance of talking about safety with your children. 2. Apply the skills learned to go home and have a safety night with your own family. 3. Illustrate the importance of having multiple adults that can be used as support people when a child is feeling unsafe or confused.
