  • Teaching Touching Safety

    The job of ensuring children's safety is a challenging undertaking. The prevention of child sexual abuse or abuse that may cause them harm, requires us giving our children the tools they need to overcome the advances of someone who intends to do them harm. The Teaching Touching Safety program is a vehicle which parents, teachers, catechists and youth ministers give children and teens the tools they need to protect themselves.
