Parent-Youth Workshop For CCS San Mateo youth and their parents
In this active, upbeat workshop, kids, teens and young adults practice using “People Safety” skills in everyday life situations. People Safety skills help prevent problems with peers, family, and strangers. The skills also help strengthen important relationships by improving communication. Practicing People Safety skills can build confidence and improve safety with people at school, in the neighborhood, at home, online -- everywhere!
Using activities and examples relevant to young people ages 8-21, we’ll practice skills to:
• Be and act aware and confident
• Check with adults if anything seems unsafe
• Move away from possible problems
• Follow Stranger Safety rules
• Stay safe from hurtful words
• Use voice as a safety tool
• Set clear boundaries
• Make safety plans so outings are more fun
• Say “No” or “Stop” clearly and respectfully
• Deal with other kids poking, pushing, grabbing, etc.
• Use safety plans if you’re lost in a store, park, or library
• Get help from busy adults - and persist!
