We invite you to join GRAND in keeping our grandkids safe
Who would have thought that teaching my own child some of the most common lines and lures used by predators would lead to a whole new passion and career! When I saw how my own son was protected by the knowledge I passed onto him, knowledge I wasn’t taught growing up, I realized that others need to know how to keep their children safe as well.
For over 15 years I’ve been working to help prevent the sexual abuse and abduction of children by providing parenting workshops, corporate lunch-and-learn seminars and classroom-based programs for children. As a Guardian ad Litem, I’ve been blessed to be a voice for abused and abandoned children and, as an advocate for children, I’ve worked to help pass child safety legislation on a state and national level.
I can’t wait to share my passion with you!
“Don’t talk to strangers, don’t take candy from strangers, and no hitchhiking!” Chances are, if you’re a grandparent, these were some of the rules you taught your own children years ago. Sadly, we now know that today’s children need to know and follow a whole new set of rules to help keep them safe.
Whether you’re one of the 7.8 million grandparents raising a grandchild or a grandparent simply loving a child, as the Child Safety Editor for GRAND Magazine I’m looking forward to helping you! I’m excited about sharing information that will easily, effectively and without fear help you ensure that your grandchild has a safe and happy childhood.
You’re invited to contact me via snail mail, email or a phone call with any question or concern that you may have regarding your grandchild’s personal safety. You have the power to change the course of a child’s life forever. Let’s do it together!
