My son was only 3 years old when Lil Iguana came in to his preschool to teach the little ones about stranger danger, stop drop and roll and run yell and tell. When I picked him up from school that day I was really surprised that they were teaching about these things at such a tender young age - however - three months later when he was at a home daycare - he was sexually assaulted by the 14 year old boy who had been left for a couple of hours to watch him and the other child there during their nap time. Thank GOD he had learned to TELL from the Lil Iguana - within a few days he told us about the "bad boy" who touched his "pickle" and "put his pickle in my mouth". Because he was EDUCATED - and in a way that he could understand as a three year old by the BEAUTIFUL Lil Iguana program - we were able to not only find out about the incident but were also able to successfully get the young man prosecuted so that he could receive the help he needed and were able to take the action to get my child into therapy right away so that there has been no long term damage to him and his psyche. I would NEVER wish this experience on anyone - you can imagine it was one of the most horrific experiences of my life. Thank GOD that the Lil Iguana program was there for us. We brought the Lil Iguana right over to the house after my son told us so that he could be validated directly that he had done the right thing by telling. I have since volunteered to serve on the Board and this foundation will have my life long support I can tell you that - this non-profit is better than GREAT! They work miracles and plant the seeds of wisdom and personal protection for children every day in every way!
