With class size reaching the proper number, I will be adding additional teachers over the next month to ensure that the quality of all classes continues to maintain their high standards.
Lately there have been an alarming number of kidnap attempts in our local neighborhood by pedophiles trying to get children to get into their car. I will be addressing this in all classes on a regular basis. What I will be telling the young Ninjas is: All adults, and that means teenagers too, know that it is wrong to ask a child to get into their car, so if they try to get you to go with them they are a bad stranger. Yell NO! A MAN OR WOMAN IS TRYING TO STEAL ME! and run to the closet safe place. It is a great idea if you can spend some time on a weekend walking with your child the route they go from home to school, identifying the safe places your child could run to get help. Be sure and ask their opinion of where they can go. When children participate in the problem solving process they tend to remember the safety information much better and feel empowered enough to do it. With four teenage children, I have first-hand knowledge how powerful peer pressure can be. Let’s use it to our advantage. Share this information with all your children’s friends parents and have your child and their friends practice kidnap safety together. The approach: Adults, and that means teenagers, know better will be applied to:
Asking for help looking for a lost puppy or kitten
Asking a child to keep a secret from their parent
Asking children to accept food, drinks, or presents, etc.
If you have any other concerns you want me to address or feedback on this information please let me know.
