Safer, Smarter Families
Digital Health & Safety Resources
During this uncertain time of school closures, childcare pressures, and increased reliance on digital devices, it is important for families to be mindful of safety – the FBI has released guidance for parents to stay alert, especially when 1 in 5 children who touch a digital device will be sexually solicited online.
Parents – fear not! We are here to provide you with the knowledge, language, and activities necessary to teach your elementary school aged child(ren) about personal safety in a way that is comfortable, accessible, and fun. (Have a middle or high schooler in your home? Visit SaferSmarterFamilies.org for lessons designed for older children and teens!)
Over the next six weeks, Lauren’s Kids will release digital lessons and activities from our Blueprint for Building Safer, Smarter Families resource, designed for use with elementary school students. A new set of lessons and activities will be posted weekly, focused on a different aspect of personal safety.
How it Works
Each digital pack includes:
- Parent Pack – A step-by-step guide for parents containing information on protective safety concepts and activities to complete with their children to teach and reinforce personal safety lessons.
- Child Activity Pack – Solo and parent-led activities in both digital and print-and-complete format. Each child pack contains different sets of activities for younger elementary-aged children (K-2) and older elementary-aged children (3-5).
