No one likes to think about it,
but it can happen to ANYONE.
Expect the best but be prepared for the worst.
Parents, guardians, and adults who care for children face constant challenges when trying to help keep children safer in today’s fast-paced world. Everson’s Karate understand this challenge. For decades, children were taught to stay away from “strangers.” But this concept is difficult for children to grasp and often the perpetrator is someone the child knows. It is more beneficial to help build children’s confidence and teach them to respond to a potentially dangerous situation, rather than teaching them to look out for a particular type of person.
Hi, my name is Dusty Everson; my school, Everson’s Karate, has successfully been teaching valuable stranger danger and bully smart skills to children in the Robbinsville area for over 20 years. Along with my partner Donna Williams and my daughter, Christinia Everson, we have established a and goal that goal is to give our children the tools to be stranger smart and bully smart.
Any parent’s worst nightmare is having their child taken away from them. The media is continually flooded with headlines of missing and exploited children. Although these crimes are real, families and children do not have to live in fear but we should be attentive and prepared. A family’s best weapon against such a tragedy is with communication and proper preparation to respond to dangerous conditions.
As parents, would you recognize the signs
of your child being Bullied?
Break the cycle by giving your child the
most important tool…Confidence!
Bullying can bring fear and hopelessness into the life of an innocent child. Sadly, many caregivers and bystanders don’t act when they see a child getting bullied on the playground or in their neighborhood. Such inaction can mean misery for children who are subjected to bullying on a regular basis. Years after the bullying has come to an end, people who were bullied as teenagers have poorer self-esteem and higher levels of depression than other adults.
