Body Safety

Body Safety programs should be age-appropriate, non-threatening and aim to teach children these basic points:

• Your body is YOUR body and no-one else has the right to touch it, especially your private areas (those covered by a bathing suit).
• If someone does touch you inappropriately, you must tell a trusted adult and keep telling until you are believed.
• Be able to identify the difference between safe and unsafe touch.
• Understand what the words ‘respect’ and ‘consent’ mean.
• Know what actions you can take if you feel worried or unsafe.

Darkness to Light

Darkness to Light understands that learning the facts about childhood sexual abuse helps prevent it. Talking about it helps prevent it. Getting involved helps prevent it. The truth is, if childhood sexual abuse can be prevented, it can be stopped. That’s why we exist, to empower adults through awareness and educational programs to prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse.

Internet Safety

The internet has become a significant part of life. At the touch of a button, we can access a world of information, entertainment, and communication. With all of this opportunity come new dangers and responsibilities. Just as we must teach our children how to use bicycle helmets and seat belts, we must now teach them how to be safe online.
