The Privates Rule

by Dr. Nora Shine will change how you think about keeping kids safe from sexual abuse, and will leave you feeling informed, empowered, and eager to use the strategies outlined in her presentation. 

The Privates Rule

If you tell your children about “the Privates Rule”, you then have an easy way to reference the topic. This is helpful not just for your own children, but also for the adults and other children with whom they spend time....

This is Why

When I was pregnant with my second child, and my first was just over a year old, a level three sex offender moved in on my street.  I could see the white picket fence in front of his house from my front steps....

Internet and Cell Phones

There is an increase in this practice called “sextortion”, by which adults reach kids and teens over technology, con them into doing or sharing something sexual, then extort them into doing more, and terrify them into keeping it all secret.

Camps, Clubs, Sports and Other Fun Things

Following some basic safety steps can give you the confidence to give your child the freedom to have fun, enriching experiences away from home and parents.
