Keeping Kids Safe: An Erin's Law Program Recommended for grades K,1,2

The Keeping Kids Safe: An Erin’s Law Program e-Learning program teaches students in grades K-2, age-appropriate sexual abuse prevention and personal body safety education. Students will learn the difference between safe touches and unsafe touches as well as safe secrets and unsafe secrets. They will learn that the body often gives warning signals, “Uh-Oh" feelings, when something feels uncomfortable or wrong and that they should tell a safe adult about those feelings.  Students will learn the Safety Rule about Touching, what parts of their body are private (those covered by a swimsuit) and how to assertively say no and tell a safe adult if the Safety Rule about Touching is broken.  This course emphasizes that students are the bosses of their own body, they have the right to say who touches their body, and that it is never their fault if something bad or hurtful happens.
