Starting Strong Workshops are an introduction to People Safety Skills for young children ages 4-6. Storytelling, puppets and interactive role-plays teach children simple but powerful skills to: act aware and confident, set boundaries, stop unwanted touch, handle unkind words, be safe with strangers, and get help from adults effectively, even when they are busy. This two-hour training introduces everyday safety skills (NOT physical self-defense skills) and guides adults in practicing these skills together with their children.
One parent or guardian is required to attend with their child.
This workshop helps answer the question, “How can we teach our children to be safe without scaring them?” in a fun, experiential way. Fee includes a Kidpower Safety Comic Book for at-home review of core concepts.
These classes are currently on hold due to COVID-19 except for school-based workshops.
We will resume in-person classes as soon as it is safe to do so.
