Overview

Answers the question parents often ask Kidpower, "How do I teach my kids to be safe with people while not scaring them?" Have fun while teaching kids to be safe from bullying, abuse, and violence. Young children will ask you to read this comic book again and again - and read and re-read it themselves once they can.

Entertaining cartoons and engaging social stories make it easy for adults to provide crucial knowledge and skills so their children can learn to be safe with people they know and with strangers.

This edition has a color cover, extensive black-and-white cartoons, and includes:

  1. Directions for adults on how to introduce personal safety to children ages 3 to 10.
  2. Social stories to discuss with children
  3. Basic "People Safety" skills for protecting emotional and physical well-being
  4. Solutions to potential problems such as bullying and stranger safety

The tools in this comic book are most appropriate for parents, teachers, and other caregivers introducing "People Safety" to children ages 3 to 10 who are usually with adults who can help them. However, the skills are important for people of any age - adults too! Older children often learn by reading and practicing with younger children. See also the "Kidpower Safety Comics for Adults with Older Kids Ages 9 to 13".
