After serving child victims of abuse and their families for almost 20 years, SungateKids has developed SungateKids, SafeKids (SK2), a multi-faceted child abuse prevention program for elementary-aged students, in hopes of reaching children and empowering them to understand the dynamics of abuse and stop it before it starts.
SK2 is a school-based/organization-based child abuse prevention program designed for elementary-aged students. The program also includes mandatory teacher/staff training and optional parent training components that can be tailored to the needs of the school/organization community.
The cornerstone of the SK2 program is our 45-minute interactive puppet program.
Topics covered in the child physical abuse program include:
What is abuse? Spanking vs. abuse Identifying safe people to talk to Keep telling until someone listens What happens once you tell?
Topics covered in the sexual abuse component include:
Abusers can be anyone Recognizing/listening to the “uh-oh” feeling Private places and private parts Children are not to blame Understanding “grooming” techniques Saying “no”
