How can you help kids feel safe in today’s troubled world?
Find out how you can quickly make a difference in children’s lives!

In today’s troubled times, more than ever, all children need to know that they can turn to and trust an adult for help. Will you take a few minutes to learn about and share these 4 important steps that can make a lasting difference in a child’s life?

September is Child Protection Advocacy Month! Our goal is to encourage every adult – parent, teacher, mentor, safety officer, neighbor, everyone – to make SURE that the children and teens in your life can count on you for help. We invite you to help transform the fear of bullying, violence, and abuse into a future of lifelong safety and success for today’s youth.

Take these four important steps to protect and empower our kids!

1.  Share the ‘Kidpower Protection Promise’ message with everyone you know, kids and adults alike.

“YOU are VERY important to me. If you have a safety problem, I want to know – even if I seem too busy, even if someone we care about will be upset, even if it is embarrassing, even if you promised not to tell, and even if you made a mistake. Please tell me, and I will do everything in my power to help you!”

2.  Know what to look out for: Listen, Notice. Pay attention.

  • Listen when kids tell you about their problems. Say, “Thank you for telling me.”
  • Notice when young people or their adults seem sad, upset, or alone. Say, “I care.”
  • Pay attention to harmful behavior. Say, “That’s not safe.: Or, “That seems disrespectful.” Or, “This is against our values.”

3.  Do something to make a difference. Reach out. Step in. Get help.

  • Reach out by asking, “What’s going on? What will help make things better?”
  • When you can, step in powerfully and respectfully to stop unsafe or disrespectful behavior.
  • Get help when you don’t know what to do.

4.  Prepare kids with knowledge and skills for taking charge of their safety

  • Tell kids, ”You have the right to be treated with safety and respect – and the responsibility to act safely and respectfully towards yourself and others.”
  • Teach kids what they need to know and do to prevent and solve problems with people.
  • Guide kids to uphold these values and use these skills in daily life.
