KidSafe – School Program: Middle School

  • – Middle School Assembly
  • – In class break out sessions for smaller group discussion

Middle School students are seeking an environment to process the many personal safety issues they are facing daily. KidSafe provides an assemby style yet interactive seminar for students to understand that they are not alone with their concerns. In the discussion many topics are covered including bullying, sexting, body boundaries, and internet safety. In the smaller break out sessions continued emphasis is on refusal skills, assertiveness and when and how to access help.

Sunrise Park Elementary School, Boca Raton Florida “The PTA is proud to support the KidSafe program at Sunrise Park. In January, we held a teacher workshop and a parent presentation to educate us on how to talk to our kids about a very scary subject in a non-threatening way and to empower them with lifetime safety skills. Exploitation prevention, Communication skills, Action plans, Buddy system, Safe vs. unsafe touch – These are very powerful and important topics for ALL parents, regardless of your children’s ages Did you know: 1 out of 4 girls and 1 out of 7 boys are exploited by the age of 18.

You may think you already know all about this subject or it won’t happen to you but what if you are wrong? There is so much to learn. Our children’s environment and influences are constantly changing. Predators are getting smarter. No longer is stranger danger the main concern. 90% of the time this action is by someone they know and trust – members of the community, family, teachers, nannies. It can happen anywhere and anyplace. We as parents have a lot to learn and KidSafe is teaching us how to be more pro-active. You assume your child would tell you if something horrible happened, but would they? Do they have a “circle of safety”? Do you play the “what if” game? If you are a school that believes in keeping our children safe – then KidSafe is the program you need.”

“For several years, our Pre-K and Day School children have participated in KidSafe, a personal safety program. Through specially designed activities, games, songs, and skill rehearsals, the children have learned how to protect themselves from abduction and exploitation. Through the enthusiastic leadership of Cherie Benjoseph, M.S.W., L.C.S.W., KidSafe empowers children with the information, skills, and support they need to remain safe.”

Testimonials

"Thank you for giving us the opportunity to be included in the KidSafe program. I highly recommend this program to other schools. We hope that we will be given the same opportunity for our Kindergarten and 2nd grade students to be a part of this wonderful program during the 2016-2017 school year."

Mrs. Keelyn Meselsohn 2nd Grade Teacher/Team Leader Tradewinds Elementary School

"The Safe and Smart Series Book My Body Is Special and Belongs To Me is kept in my middle school clinic and has been a tool that has opened many conversations for me between students that have experienced a difficult situation and were unable to talk about it. Through the illustrations and nonjudgmental verbiage the author has allowed kids permission to share their feelings about invasion of their personal space. Thank you so much."

Nurse Connie, PBC School Nurse 6.8.2016

"I'm so grateful that KidSafe has partnered with my daughter's school.  I learned so much in the parent training--how to recognize potential sexual predator behavior; how to quiz my child about what they would do in different scenarios; and how to explain safe and unsafe touch.  In addition, knowing that my daughter is receiving weekly trainings on these topics gives me great peace of mind.  I have confidence that I can reinforce what she is learning in school in order to prevent her from ever being a victim of such a heinous crime.  Thank you KidSafe for your dedication to protecting our communities' most vulnerable citizens."

“It was a normal Saturday and I was at the rink with my 7 and 8 year old. My son asked me if he could use the Men’s Restroom by himself.  Without hesitation, my daughter said,  Absolutely not! I was in KidSafe today and you cannot go to the restroom alone.  It is very important that Mommy is with you.. with us.   I was so proud of my little girl!  We are so blessed to have Debbie Miller at our school teaching our children the importance of safety. Many thanks to you all!  Your program and instruction is absolutely amazing.  Keep up the great work!"  

Tara Henley Admissions Assistant, St. Mark’s Episcopal Church and School, Ft. Lauderdale

I am a parent of two Pine Crest children and I attended your program on Monday night. I just wanted to thank you so very much for the very informative seminar. As hard as it was to hear all of those things, it was very needed. We were thrilled that you were able to come and share that very important information with us and our children. So again...thank you.

Elisa Aronberg

Today’s training was awesome! It was very informative. Sally was a very good resource, she motivated us a lot! We want to pass on this information to parents, teachers and students! Thank you for offering workshops like this. These are tools we use to continue serving our children and families.
