Family Materials

It’s important that families understand what’s being taught in schools, especially with sensitive subjects. We’ve created a set of educational materials to explain what students are learning, alleviate anxiety, and provide guidance for talking to kids about safe and unsafe touch. Family letters help explain the program and adults’ role in child protection. Take-home activities and online videos further reinforce skills and encourage family discussions.
