To Keep My Body Safe, I Have a Plan is a groundbreaking children’s picture book to effectively teach safety, whether on a play date, at school, or anywhere a child might be without his or her trusted caregiver. Developed with the guidance of renowned child safety expert, Pattie Fitzgerald, Founder of Safely Ever After, Inc., and grounded in brain science, this Have a Plan Book is essential for all school-age children, though it is appropriate for younger children as well.
Safety of the body can be a difficult topic to discuss with kids, but the rules are straightforward and critical. Research by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that one in six boys and one in four girls are sexually abused before the age of eighteen. Many books on safety emphasize “stranger danger,” but an estimated ninety-percent of sexual abusers are known to the child. The safety rules in this book could save your child from being a victim of child molestation.
This book gently introduces children to the concept of SAFE ADULTS, INTUITION, and the ESSENTIAL RULES for keeping the body safe. Children will be empowered to L.E.A.D.: to integrate Logic and Emotions to Analyze and Decide on a safety plan. Learning safety facts, examining the emotions involved, analyzing safety tips, and deciding on a safety plan gives children security, confidence, and the tools they need to keep their body safe.
Blueprint it! If you choose to personalize this Have a Plan Book, your child will learn safety rules while viewing their name, personal photos, a character that resembles them, and/or a dedication. A personalized book makes a child the hero of their story, engaging them and promoting comprehension and recall of potentially life-saving concepts.
