Description of Workshop:

The Kidpower Parent Workshop is designed to help adults help young people develop skills for being safe with people, including strangers, peers, and others they know. Each session is different, because every group is unique, and every workshop is tailored to the ages and life situations of the participants’ children. Participants learn ways to help their children learn People Safety skills in a way that is age-appropriate and effective without being scary and that is adaptable as children grow, take on more independence, and experience new situations. During the workshop, adults will learn how to help kids:

Be and act aware and confident
Check with adults if anything seems unsafe
Move away from possible problems
Follow Stranger Safety rules
Stay safe from hurtful words
Use voice as a safety tool
Set clear boundaries
Say “No” or “Stop” clearly and respectfully
Deal with other kids poking, pushing, grabbing, etc.
Use safety plans if lost in a store, park, or library
Get help from busy adults – and persist!
