“An Ounce of Prevention: A New Approach to Child Safety” by Pattie Fitzgerald, Founder of Safely Ever After, Inc gives parents a comprehensive look at the myth of “stranger-danger,” and why parents can better serve their kids by referring to “tricky people.” Pattie will guide you through some simple safety rules that resonate with young children and will also help parents recognize when someone is “thumbs up or thumbs down,” by identifying red flag grooming tricks and other warning signs of inappropriate people. This class will help you understand how to keep playdates and other outings safe for your children, without turning you into a helicopter parent or making you paranoid. Pattie’s approach is all about common sense, listening to your “uh-oh feeling,” and she does it all with a positive, friendly “mom-vibe.”
