What Kids Need to Know to Stay Safe: A Guide for Kids & Families

A Courageous Conversation with Special Guest Kailani Mills

Childhelp Hollywood House is offering a FREE WEBINAR about personal safety for families with children from age 4 to 13. The family-friendly webinar will teach the five Childhelp Speak Up Be Safe safety rules and explain how these rules can help kids stay safe from abuse, even when they are online. This is a must-see webinar for anyone committed to protecting young children and starting a lasting conversation with them about preventing abuse and staying safe, online and off.

We will deliver tools from our prevention education program that will increase your child’s ability to recognize unsafe situations or abusive behaviors and to build a responsive safety network. You may recognize our multitalented special guest and Childhelp Youth Sports Ambassador, Kialani Mills, who will walk kiddos through safety rules and scenarios to demonstrate how to stay safe from abuse. We’ll also introduce a short video about online safety that can help the concerned adults in a child’s life to start the conversation about staying safe on the Internet and in social media apps.

For decades, the Childhelp Speak Up Be Safe (CHSUBS) curriculum has provided students from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade with age-appropriate knowledge, tools, and skills to prevent, recognize, and stop child abuse. During the pandemic, Los Angeles youth and families are at greater risk. Our children are increasingly vulnerable to Internet scams and predators as well as cyberbullying. Now is the time for a courageous conversation with our kids.

This is the second of a three-part educational series that Childhelp Hollywood House is offering to Angelenos. This first session was structured for adults with a survivor’s guide to preventing child abuse from speaker Jenna Quinn (recorded session found by clicking here), and the third session will deliver Childhelp Speak Up Be Safe prevention tools for high school students and their families. We recommend that parents or other interested adults attend all three sessions, and invite the kids in their lives to the session for their age group. Join us for this educational discussion and open up a courageous conversation with someone you love, a child in your life, or a Childhelp Counselor ready to hear your story.
