Overview

A dynamic program for empowering children to protect themselves

In Raising Kids Who Can Protect Themselves,
Debbie and Mike Gardner share their decades of self-defense experience to show parents how to teach their children courage—the trait needed to make brave,
smart, and safe choices, no matter what their age, no matter what the situation. Raising
Kids Who Can Protect Themselves
helps families foster courage in their children at an early age so that it becomes an inherent trait, rather than a situational need.
The book features:

  • Age-appropriate methods to instill courage in children without creating fear
  • Courage coaching as a way to create a “family” defense system
  • Lifesaving skills, such as quality eye contact, voice control, breathing, control of inappropriate crying, development of positive self-talk, and space awareness
  • Ways to reduce children’s vulnerability
  • Site-specific survival strategies, from parties to the mall to sports practice

Every time I watch the nightly news, I thank God my wife and children have been trained by Debbie and Mike Gardner. Please, please, please read this book as a family. You will learn how to avoid the most dangerous situations and fight your way out of the rest. We live in a very different world today—arm your family with the power of this book.
-Cris Collinsworth, Sports Commentator for Fox/HBO Sports

This book is brave, bold and one of the most important books I’ve read in a long time. A must for parents everywhere.
-Doug Hall, Author of Jump Start Your Business Brain

How do you prepare a child for the danger of daily living and still raise a confident human being? You read this book. I thought I'd read everything available on self-defense for children so I was stunned to stumble across this treasure. Most books have a good tip or two in them but few are practical, and some are downright dangerous. This is the first I've found that offers a parent a complete process for raising a strong and safe child. This book won't give you statistics or the details of predator psychology - vital information for parents - but you can read up on those separately. Meanwhile, don't skip the small stuff. There are powerful messages tucked into single paragraphs in this book. I disagree with the author in only one area - the need for long-term physical self-defense instruction - but understand his concern because of the lack of practical application to real-world scenarios in most martial arts schools. Real self-defense schools are difficult to find... so read this book! I definately recommend this for parents of children ages 3 to 16.
