The 5 Safety Rules are taught to children and teens in all MBF Prevention Education Programs. The Safety Rules help them identify and respond appropriately to bullying, cyberbullying, the four types of child abuse (physical, emotional, sexual, and neglect), digital dangers, relationship abuse, human trafficking, and other types of victimization.
Parents and adults can learn more and reinforce the Safety Rules by asking children/teens to explain each rule and by practicing the motions that go with the rules for elementary students. Additionally, parents and adults can use the Safety Rules themselves to better protect children.
There’s not a child in the world who can’t benefit from this program. There are so many instances where we see children who have been damaged and hurt. Things happened to them and we think, if they’d only had this program, if they’d only had the benefit of this education, that might not have happened to them. If we can prevent that from happening to a single child, then it’s worth all the effort we have put forth.
