Teaching Safety Skills to Our Children

Journal of Biblical Counseling 36:3

Author and counselor Julie Lowe is passionate about teaching safety skills to children, but she does not advocate teaching “stranger danger.” She reminds us that most child abuse is perpetrated by adults that children already know—family members and friends—not strangers. So rather than living in fear of strangers, Lowe advises us to equip children to evaluate a person’s intentions by what they do, not by what they say or whether they are known to them. She explores how role-playing can help parents and other trusted adults teach these skills. It is an excellent resource for any parent, children’s counselor, or youth pastor.
