Stranger Safety &
Kidnapping Prevention Skills
There are hundreds of resources available for everyone to learn from and share on the Kidpower.org website. I spent over a year learning about child safety and advocacy and chose to train with Kidpower. I went to America in January 2016 and did my Instructor Training and now have a couple of workshop videos I need to record to complete my certification. We had the most wonderful time together. Such wonderful, inspirational people. I’m very proud to have been a part of the group in California this year, to have met the team and to have been trained by a lovely group who came from far and wide to train us new recruits. I think it was the children we taught who were training us!! Boy do they keep you on your toes!
I also met a wonderful South African lady who has taken Kidpower back home. I hope to share some stories about SA through her. So watch this space.
I’ve chosen the topic of stranger safety and kidnapping prevention skills because I’ve been reading articles about the awful trafficking that has been going on in Nepal since their earthquake a year ago, where the papers say government officials have been accepting bribes to traffic people into slavery, forced marriages, and the sex trade. It reminds me of my constant awareness of kidnapping and teaching my children about trusting their instincts with strangers, wherever we are. I hope you find this article informative and please keep browsing and learning from this incredible resource.
If you’re interested in attending a Kidpower workshop in Bristol over the next couple of months then please let me know so I can get you booked on.
