Safety on the Internet

Technology and social media are expanding faster than our ability to keep up and our toddlers are often more proficient with a touch screen than we are.  So what’s a parent to do?

Understanding Emotional Abuse

Emotional abuse is a pattern of behavior that attacks a child’s emotional development and sense of self-worth.

Preventing Bullying

For too long, adults have believed that bullying is just part of growing up, that there have always been kids who are jocks and kids who are geeks; those who are “in” and those who are “out.”  This acceptance has prevented adults from stopping this pattern.  This website will help you challenge this acceptance from the earliest possible age, creating a new standard for interpersonal relationships.

Preventing Child Sexual Abuse

Children have a right to be safe without being afraid and children who have been taught to think for themselves are the safest children of all.

Recognizing Physical Abuse

Sometimes physical abuse is obvious, but more often physical abuse is a pattern or series of events, occurrences which singularly seem to have a reasonable explanation, but which, as a whole, cause concern.

Recognizing Child Neglect

The failure to provide for a child’s basic physical, emotional, or educational needs or to protect a child from harm or potential harm. Like acts of commission, harm to a child may or may not be the intended consequence.
