This resource is designed as a guide to protective behaviours for parents and carers. The protective behaviours program is based on two themes:
We all have the right to feel safe at all times
We can talk with someone about anything, no matter what it is
By sharing protective behaviours with your child, you will be helping to develop lifelong skills of assertiveness, self-confidence, problem-solving, communication, resilience and help-seeking.
The activities and discussions in the handbook are simple and presented in a fun, child-friendly way and inform them of some of the vital skills of personal safety.
