Please join us for an inspiring workshop on Parenting Safe Children: Empowering Adults to Keep Children Safe from Sexual Abuse. This workshop is for BCD families only and is being provided free of charge through a gift from two BCD families. The normal fee for this workshop is $50/person. By virtue of a grant made by BCD families, the rate for this workshop will only be $20/person.

Parents will learn:
  • What makes children vulnerable to sexual abuse.
  • What body-safety rules you can teach your children to keep them safe.
  • How you can talk about your child’s body safety with teachers, coaches, nannies, family members, faith leaders and other parents.
