Child Protection Month may be drawing to a close, but the tools and insights that you’ve found here can be used year-round. Irene van der Zande, Beth McGreevy, and all of the fine folks at Kidpower have shared lots of great resources and ideas; the members of Team Pickle would like to extend their heartfelt thanks.
As we move into October, parents and caregivers can find further safety tips and resources relating to Bullying Prevention Month. This Kidpower post from Irene van der Zande includes books and articles about bullying, and podcast examples of clear and common language that will help define what is happening when bullying is suspected or witnessed.
Some say that love makes the world go ’round, others say that it’s money. I think that safety is the real answer. Food and shelter to keep our bodies safe. Love to keep our hearts safe. Education to keep our minds and futures safe. Caring parents and outstanding organizations such as Kidpower to keep our children safe. By working together, we can make Child Protection Month last all year.
