Empowering Conversations Around Body Safety
1 in 5 Australian Children Will Experience…
It’s not drowning, or car accidents. Water safety and traffic safety education and prevention has worked. Which is why it’s now time for body safety, protective behaviours and respectful relationships education to be on the agenda.
Unfortunately, 1 in 5 Australian children will experience sexual abuse before they turn 18 years years. Chances are you know someone who has been sexually abused. Don’t let history repeat itself.
Sexual abuse knows no social, economical or religious boundaries. Yet, body safety education often falls on the wayside throughout our parenting journey.
We get it. It can be very confronting, overwhelming and downright awkward to bring up body safety and personal boundaries. And when is the right age to start, anyway?
Our children’s resources are bright, colourful and educational. Our parent resources help parents to remove the shame, fear and mind-blocks surrounding talking about the body, consent and respectful relationships.
All of our children have the right to a safe and happy childhood.
Wait… what is body safety education anyway?
Body safety and protective behaviours education covers how to name, understand and recognise feelings (EQ), our amazing natural bodies (public, private and personal body parts), understanding consent, assertive communication skills, and critical thinking skills. Do those sound like qualities and skills that you’d like your child to have?
Safe & Happy Kids provides home-grown Australian resources to help you get your child well-versed in body safety in a slightly off-beat, educational and age-appropriate manner!
