BECOMING AN INSTRUCTOR
radKIDS® PARENTS AS INSTRUCTORS
One of our favorite calls received at radKIDS® National Headquarters is when a parent calls looking to learn more about radKIDS® and how they can get involved. On these occasions, we get to share the possibility for each of them, to become a nationally certified radKIDS® Instructors in their community. This is usually followed by a short silence only to hear, “Me, I am just a parent?” “Just a parent!” In your child’s life there is no better safety partner or educator, then a child’s parent? Our radKIDS® personal skill building curriculum is designed for children and their parents/ adult (family) to work together and in support of each other.
The radKIDS® curriculum is not based on expectations (do’s and don’ts) but instead provides children with the opportunity to identify and maintain their own personal boundaries, enhance their problem solving skills and gain physical skills to “Stop” anyone from trying to hurt them. “This shift from the responsibility to be safe, to the opportunity to stay safe, is a gift that can and will last a lifetime”.
When you hear the terms abduction, sexual assault or bullying do you immediately want to change the subject or move away from the conversation? Have you ever heard anyone say, “That will never happen to me!” when referring to the safety of his/her children? This is a normal reaction for most of us when we are confronted with the fear of the unknown. But, together we can change that.
“Education is the only thing that can remove the instinctual fear of the unknown and replace it with power, choice and opportunity.” – Stephen M. Daley M.Ed
What better way to feel better about our children’s safety than to teach them yourself or find a radKIDS® program for them?
If you are ready to truly empower your children with their own personal boundaries, personal safety skills and critical thinking and problem solving skills and would also like to help their friends and other children in your neighborhood or community join us and become a radKIDS® Instructor today.
