Course Description

The truth is: most parents do not teach kids safety until something happens 

"The 10 minutes I could not find my son in a closing park were the worst in my life. Checking all leaving cars and not seeing him anywhere - I ( a huge man) felt helpless." - Alex, dad (last name removed for privacy)

It takes less than 10 seconds to abduct a child

"Do you want 

YOUR child to be SAFE?" 

Teach your child

"Safety with people in a positive way"

The most requested online safety course

for parents of kids 3-10 years old

Go from fear to knowledge and confidence


Are you working on safety with your child?

Not yet? 

It's "too early"?

  • Your kids are too young
  • You have no time
  • And, honestly, you don't want to think about it - it's too overwhelming (I know - I'm a mom too)


But, it's going to be too late before you know it:

"A big mistake: most people think if nothing bad has happened to them yet, nothing will happen - so they don't make any plans for that" - Brandon Schaefer, law enforecment officer, Wilco


Is your child ready to be safe on his own when you are not around?

Are you worried about your child getting kidnapped, harmed, or sexually assaulted?

These all are huge problems and most of them happen WHEN PARENTS ARE NOT AROUND.

"SAFETY WITH STRANGERS"

A system that was designed for kids.

A 3-hour online course helping you teach 3-10-year-old kids safety with people and self-defense in a modern and positive way.

---

This training is different, in a big way

  • Positive - no scary stories or methods - our goal is to give you the confidence to teach without scaring your kids.
  • Hands-on - kids will understand and remember.
  • Practical - you can teach and they will use it in real life.



"This is worlds better than the usual "teach your kids to fear everything" safety resources I've found so far." - Liz T., mom


Our methods are different, too

  • You'll have examples of conversations on how to explain safety without frightening your kids
  • You'll teach danger awareness, but kindness, at the same time
  • You'll teach by experience and involvement - so that skills stick forever


You will see your child's safety from a totally new perspective!

As a result

What is the biggest takeaway from this training?

  1. You will build your child's confidence that she can handle a dangerous situation.
  2. You will help him be responsible for his own safety and make smart decisions when you are not around.
  3. You will become less worried and more confident yourself.

OR will you help him?

Bonus lessons:

  • How to keep your shy child safe
  • How to keep your fearless child safe


It's time to pause and think if this applies to your child


Your child is at risk, if:
  • He doesn't know about levels of trust
  • He doesn't grasp the concept of strangers: he either knows everyone or wants to know everyone
  • He can’t identify people who might be dangerous
  • He may not understand if someone is tricking him into going somewhere by promising treats, candy, money, or goodies
  • He believes anybody nice to him
  • He talks to everyone and everywhere
  • He shares too much information

If parents do nothing, unprepared kids become HELPLESS in front of real danger:
  • It’s hard for them to think for themselves and say No to bribes: food (especially sweets), toys, money, luring experiences, curiosity hooks, and unhealthy habits and choices.
  • They may get into people's cars, walk into their houses, let people in, go with people they don't know, and take dangerous things from strangers.
  • These kids don't understand when they are in danger.
  • They can't ask for help.
  • And they don't know how to get out of trouble.

Lack of safety skills in childhood leads to safety problems as grown-ups as well.


What parents say 

"My now 14yo did scare me once when he was allowed out to the park himself around 10 years old. 

I thought he "knew enough" about stranger danger, but when a strange woman invited him to go see her puppies, he was ready to leave with her. That’s when I knew I needed help in teaching him." - Laura, mom 


This is not your fault

Most parents are not educated in safety practices for kids. It’s time to do it for your kids!




A big mistake

The “old school” teaches kids to trust only people they know, and that all strangers are not safe

  • As a result, these kids can’t ask a stranger for help and receive it when they are in trouble.
  • They fear new people in their life.
  • And the worst scenario – they often become victims of crimes caused by people they “kinda-knew” and trusted.



How is your life going to change after this training?

Do you want your kids to be helpless?

Or do you want to prepare them to be safe?

1. Provide them with tools to use in case of an attempt of attack, abuse, or situations when you are not around to protect them.

2. Teach "red flag" awareness without instilling a fear of ALL strangers.

3. Warn them about bad strangers without taking away their friendliness to the good ones.

What parents say

How do you feel about your fears now after using this module? "Fears are normal but I can choose not to pass them on to my child. Just because I'm afraid of something doesn't mean my child needs to be - I can teach her how to react in instances."

What are the new things you've learned? "Repetition is key to getting a response in stressful situations. Talking about something once or watching a video isn't going to get an automatic reaction when kids are tested with stressful situations."

What did you find most helpful? "That I don't have to pass along my fears - i can educate my child on what responses are appropriate in situations. The examples of the stories and examples to say when talking about them with my child." - Missy Glaser, mom

And have peace of mind for yourself!

  • Feel comfortable leaving kids with others, knowing they won't make bad decisions while in others' care.
  • Make running errands easier, have more enjoyable play-dates, traveling and going out together.
  • Worry less. 


When you are not around (or not looking) your kids can be safe on their own.

They understand why, and they know how to do it.

This would be a great relief!

What parents say:

"Be WITH kids "Stranger Safety" course has been a very insightful course. 

Every module covers a different aspect of stranger safety with ideas and games to play with your kids to teach them about this topic. 

I was pleasantly surprised with the detailed content and how easy it was to understand it. 

I would highly recommend this course to anyone wanting to start teaching their children about stranger safety. 

It really opens your eyes to situations you may never have though of." - Sophia Koulakis, mom 


Let’s think long-term: protect your kids for all their life!

1. Skills: To understand the importance of safety rules, and follow them without you helicoptering over

2. Trust: To trust his safety skills when he gets older and gets more freedom

3. Safety: To be safe at school, camp, public event, field trip, or play-date

4. Respect: To be treated with respect at school and the world around

5. Smartness: To make smart decisions and stand up for themselves

6. Freedom: To be safe when traveling and exploring


Do you want to prepare your child for life outside of your home?

What child care professionals say

"I hadn't thought too much about the "double standards" we create as parents.  Or how to really spell out the difference between levels of trust and levels of goodness.

Hands down, the "games" at the end were fantastic!  

I felt more armed with knowledge of how to better equip my kids to deal with strangers and their feelings.

You're doing a great job! I'm learning SO MUCH about my attitude, my beliefs and what MORE I should be doing for my kids, THANK YOU!" - Laura Richards, Mum of two and Founder of Laura's Wee Lambs, Childminding Service


Why is this program better than anything you have seen?

It’s different from anything you’ve seen before:

  1. Positive - gain confidence to teach without scaring your kids.
  2. Hands-on - kids will remember it.
  3. Practical - use in real life.


Designed for busy moms and dads:

  • Age-appropriate explanations
  • Hands-on games
  • Quick lessons
  • Conversation scripts and examples
  • Recommendations for special situations
  • Tips on how to avoid mistakes
  • A community
  • A supportive teacher (and a mom who's been in your shoes) – because nobody needs more fear!


What parents say:

"I love the reassuring and confident tone you take in the module. 

You are not tearing me down or telling me I've been doing everything wrong. Instead you're giving me other viewpoints to consider and other tools to try. 

Sometimes my first reaction to parenting advice is really defensive and it takes me awhile to work through that to internalize the advice. I did not have that defensive reaction with this at all!"  Liz T., mom 


Parents who are teaching kids safety with us:

  1. Are confident about their kids’ safety skills
  2. Teach their kids safety on the go using the situations that come naturally without overwhelming themselves or scaring their kids
  3. Save time using quick, easy, no-preparation games and experiences
  4. Provide age-appropriate explanations kids understand and remember
  5. Avoid costly mistakes and prevent problems before they happen
  6. Do not worry about their kids being around teachers, coaches, and other adults
  7. Don't stress over the news and scary stories on the internet
  8. Don't pass their negative experience and fears onto their kids


By the time their kids grow up these parents will know they did their best to keep their child be safe.

What parents say:

"I completed "Safety with Strangers" course by Katy and absolutely loved it!!

Before I started, I had so many questions about how to approach the subject with my kids because I didn't want to scare the life out of them - I'm already scared enough by it!

By the end, though, I had the confidence and knowledge to go through these topics one at a time with my kids, in a meaningful and logical way.

My favorite parts were the games included at the end of the modules. They really helped understand the way to teach these things to my kids in a tactile, sort-of real life way so they would retain the 'what to do if...' mentality.

I think the biggest benefits of the course are:

(1) the fact that Katy is a mom and knows her stuff really makes it easy to follow along and be truly supported along the way, and

(2) there are several different topics that I can almost promise you've never thought about until really digging into how to keep your child safe by prevention.

I definitely recommend this course to all moms who want to make their kids knowledgeable and capable of keeping themselves safe!!", Stella Nadene, mom of 3

 

Kids who are learning safety with us:

  1. Behave thoughtfully and confidently
  2. Know what situations are dangerous and how to handle them
  3. Use rules and common sense to stay safe even when their friends don't
  4. Can stand up for themselves
  5. Can get help
  6. Can remove themselves from dangerous situations


By the time they grow up these kids will be capable of keeping themselves safe:

What parents say

"The biggest is the realization that I should not be trying to teach him specific step-by-step reactions for every potentially unsafe situation, but that I should be working more on helping him develop his skills and intuition so he can react safely even in situations we've never discussed." Liz T., mom 


"I love how you are reassuring to the parent!" Apple Brooks, mom


This is the last call


"I love the content so much that I feel like a bad parent since I have taught my kid this yet.

It is really scary thinking that something could actually happen to my child." Sophia Koulaskis, mom


I know you would rather put it off till later, but:

Let’s be honest.

× ! If you don’t do it now you will never do it 

×  Your child will stay unprepared and you will feel guilty for not preventing the trouble you could have prevented with this course.

× Doing it “one of these days” means “none of these days”.

Don’t wait until something happens to start teaching safety.

It might be too late.
