During this week would like to raise awareness and inspire adults to take action to protect children One Day at a Time. The below is a schedule guide - we want to encourage families, members and community members to take action! Follow along daily and complete the activities!

Tuesday: Internet Safety - Kids may be spending more time online or in front of a screen, parents may be working from home, having financial stressors, or have had to arrange different childcare options. Here are some digital safety resources and sample activity checklist. CLICK HERE
Wedensday: Family Code of Conduct, Being a Trusted Adult, Who is a Trusted Adult - It's important to have open communication about the different stressors, especially with children. Having honest, on-going conversations is a great protection from child sexual abuse. Checking-in with kids to see how they are feeling and paying attention to what they say is extremely important. But remember, silence is okay, too. Allow them to have the space they need to open up. Follow the links for more information and action.
Thursday: Local Resources - It may be difficult to keep up with what services are open during this time. It is important to have access and know where to seek assistance or help. CLICK HERE for contact information sheet
