COVID + ABUSE PREVENTION on CTV NEWS

Thank you for the great report Lyds Maria and CTV News and CTV Northern Ontario for spotlighting this important message for parents.
 
I was interviewed by Lydia Chubak from CTV Northern Ontario news about the 3 things parents should be thinking about and taking action on during this quarantine for kids of different ages in terms of abuse prevention.

# 1- Kids who are living with or staying with a child sexual predator parent or another family member, should be getting abuse prevention education (from at least one parent) on what to do at this time (knowing how and who to report to- ei: the other parent, hotline, safety network, etc.) knowing their rights, and body safety, etc.

# 2- Parents who have to work during this time outside of the home (everyone from doctors to grocery store cashiers) and are having to put their kids in the care of family, friends, babysitters, etc., also need to give their kids abuse prevention education (a sort of sensitive crash course),...

How Harry Potter Helps Me Teach My Kids About Consent (and Secrets and Tricky People)!

When it comes to finding ways to reinforce lessons about abuse prevention, you can definitely find GOLD in JK Rowlings Harry Potter series. I've been able to pull beautiful examples of consent, secrets and tricky people as well as many others.

I talk about those three in this video so you can get a sense of how to use them in the books that your kids are already reading. But I also give an example from media (Frozen) and how you can use those as well.

We want to know that our kids are truly understanding the lessons we teach about body safety, boundaries and consent. So getting affirmations coming FROM THEM is such a wonderful feeling.

It's a confirmation that they are 'getting it' and that they are becoming empowered!

There are many ways we can use everyday moments to teach and then reinforce abuse prevention education without it having to feel or be uncomfortable or anxiety-producing! The tools are all around us! You just have to start to see the world through consent!

How to create a SAFETY NETWORK for your kids and why it's so important!

ABUSE PREVENTION TOOLKIT: A safety network is a MUST in your abuse prevention toolkit. Here are the reasons why:

- Your child needs to know that they have other adults/peers in their life that they can turn to if they need help and you (as the primary caregiver) are either unavailable or they can't turn to you for any number of reasons.

- They may be put in a position where they are bribed, threatened or

So what do you need to create a safety-network?

You need to have 3 to 5 adults (can include one peer) and one of those adults needs to be someone that is NOT family.

Your child should help you select who they feel are the trusted adults that can be included in the safety-network.

once you have your list, you need to then ask those adults/peers if they are willing to be in your family's safety- network and what that will mean if they agree.

What it will mean is that they are accessible to reach by phone or in-person and that if they can't be accessible that they can reach out to...
