Workshop highlights keeping children safe

LAKEPORT Keeping children safe in our evolving society becomes more difficult each day. Parents and other caretakers are faced with constant challenges when trying to keep their children safe in this fast-paced world. Newspapers are filled each day with stories of crimes committed against children by people they trust.

A free new workshop, “What Parents Need to Know About Keeping Kids Safe,” will be provided on May 31 by Lake Family Resource Center in Lakeport. Caregivers will learn the skills needed to teach children “how to be safe.”

Traditionally, children have been taught to stay away from “strangers” because strangers are dangerous. We now know this isn’t always true. Sometimes the perpetrator of violence on a child is someone the child knows.

Participants will learn how to build a child’s confidence and how to teach them to be alert to certain behaviors in people instead of thinking strangers are the only danger to their wellbeing.

“What Parents Need to Know” will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday, May 31, at Lake Family Resource Center, 896 Lakeport Blvd, Lakeport.

Space is limited for this free workshop. Register, or receive further information, by calling Lake Family Resource Center, 262-1611 or 1-888-775-8336.
