The focus of our guidance lesson this month is on child/sexual abuse. Providing preventive programming in this area is mandated by the State of Texas for all schools to help in protecting our children. Specifically, the topic of sexual abuse is of a sensitive nature and will be discussed with elementary students in terms of personal body safety. Northwest ISD partners with Alliance for Children to bring the “P.S. It’s My Body!” program to our students. Program facilitators and counselors will use age-appropriate terminology such as “private parts” or “body parts covered by a swimsuit.” We also would like to encourage you to talk to your children about the prevention of child and sexual abuse.
To join us in this conversation, please find further information via the following link:
Select the Real Talk: Child/Sexual Abuse. From there, you will find links to the following resources:
· Prevention techniques
· Warning signs
· Myths about child sexual abuse
· How to respond to an outcry of abuse
· Child/sexual abuse resources
The “P.S. It’s My Body” program will be presented on our campus on April 4 & 5. If you have questions regarding the program, please feel free to contact me. Thank you for allowing us to partner with you in the awareness and prevention of child and sexual abuse.
