My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for KidSafe Foundation, Coral Springs, FL, USA
My children have had the amazing opportunity to be a part of the KidSafe Foundation's 8 week classroom curriculum in both preschool and elementary school. This invaluable education has proven effective in and out of our house. My children who are now 10 and 12 will observe something they don't deem as appropriate or safe and say "Mom. Is that KidSafe?" It is not just a term to us, but a way of life for our family that is practiced on a daily basis. My children use the skills that have been taught and they don't even realize they are doing it. For example, they "check first" before just going outside with friends. We often role paly situations that could occur during a sleep over or at a party. They report things that happen that make them feel uneasy or uncomfortable. This program has armed my children with knowledge about internet safety, their bodies, self awareness, and have given them techniques on how to discuss these subjects with us.
The parent seminars that The KidSafe Foundation have presented, have helped us feel more comfortable talking to our children about subjects that many parents shy away from. I have been to several of these seminars and learn something new at each one. I often walk away wishing that I would have had this same KidSafe education that my children are able to have when I was a child. Thanks to this nonprofit organization we feel we have armed our children with tools that they will have for a lifetime to help them make educated decisions that will help keep them safe as they encounter new situations and people.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
This curriculum should be offered in every school around the country. Imagine all the lives that could be positively changed with this education for children and their parents.
