“Doing Right by Our Kids is a field guide for practicing courage. It will arm you with the knowledge and skills you need to know when, why, and how to act to protect your kids.” – Dan Heath, co-author of Made to Stick and Switch. We’ve seen great progress in keeping our kids safe. Yet we still have a long way to go! Research has shown that bullying, abuse, and other harmful childhood experiences cause suffering not only when they occur, but can negatively affect individuals throughout their lives. Unfortunately, the fear of feeling uncomfortable and not knowing what to do often get in the way of taking effective action. Doing Right by Our Kids creates a full circle of safety, getting adults on the same page—in families, schools, organizations, and communities. The safety of kids is everybody’s business!
