1. Kidpower.org (https://www.kidpower.org/) teaches parents how to talk to kids about staying safe and teaches kids how to stay safe.

I felt the classes were excellent and gave really great age-appropriate information on staying safe in a variety of situations that could arise as well as how to respond to bullying.”
