Protecting our children
Date posted: April 30, 2013
The Advocacy & Resource Center is hosting a free workshop this weekend called “7 Steps To Protecting Our Children.”
This workshop is designed to empower people to prevent child sexual abuse. The free workshop will teach parents and caregivers how to:
— minimize opportunity
— stay alert
— make a plan
— act on suspicions
— get involved
The workshop will be presented by Chandra Wyman, a certified trainer for the Stewards of Children. Stewards of Children is the only nationally available program scientifically proven to increase knowledge, improve attitudes and change child-protective behaviors.
All workshop materials are free and provided to you by the Advocacy & Resource Center in cooperation with the Sheridan County Sex Offender Containment Team.
As a parent, I always want to learn more about how I can protect my children. As an advocate, I know the reality and costs of child sexual abuse in our community. Please clear your morning and plan on attending this free workshop.
I think you will be glad you came and hopefully leave with useful information that is practical.
It is Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon at the Tongue River Valley Community Center in Dayton. Call us today at 672-7471 to reserve your spot and materials.
Our children are important enough to attend a three-hour workshop that could really benefit you as their parent or care-giver.
