For girls just starting to ride the bus with one or two friends, begin babysitting, and be trusted at home alone. Does more independence and responsiblity for her have to mean more worry for you? This class is for both her emerging awareness and your peace of mind. In 2 1/2 hours, she will learn safety skills essential for her increasing independence and safety when she is:
- Home alone or with younger siblings
- Riding the bus by herself or with a friend or two
- Walking or biking to the park or corner store with a friend.
Let’s face it: Talking to kids about safety is tough. But, as they mature and become increasingly independent, you want them to take care of themselves while living rich, full lives. In these classes they will learn to recognize “red flags,” plan safe exits from iffy situations, try out physical moves (just in case), and learn to find supportive self-care. All in age-appropriate language and concepts.
