Every child has the right to feel safe and be protected. Learning how to protect themselves and be aware of the danger does not create more fear but instill in them a sense of security and confidence.
The mental awareness of what is uncomfortable and unacceptable and the recognition that they have a right to voice that feeling of unease is the first step to the prevention of violence and danger. Children will be taught to use strategies to identify danger and to avoid potentially dangerous situations.
Simple and effective techniques of self defence will be taught to children as the last resort and not to be practiced against family members, friends and colleagues. These techniques will be practiced repeatedly until they become a bodily reflex.
