4UrKids: “Carpe Momento” = Seize The Moment! (Part I)


When it comes to child sexual abuse, many parents are left scratching their heads, wondering how best to approach the topic with their children. Many wonder, is it possible to teach my child body safety without scaring him, or making him fearful and paranoid? In a word… YES!

There are countless ways parents can reinforce safety messages with children just by optimizing teachable moments found in everyday events. I’m a believer in “sound bite parenting” where life lessons are shared with kids in small segments over time. When children hear repetitive, consistent messages in small bits (a few minutes or less), it helps them process and apply what they’ve learned. A one-and-done conversation about body safety isn’t enough to reinforce this important life lesson. Children need to be reminded about body safety over time, as well as empowered and encouraged to know what action to take to protect themselves.

The theme for this three-part series is, “Carpe Momento!” Seize everyday moments as teaching opportunities for your children. Over the next three days, I will share ideas and tips you may wish to try when talking with your kids about keeping their bodies safe. It really isn’t a hard thing to do… and can even be fun!

  1. 682624 75688Excellent read, I just passed this onto a friend who was doing some research on that. And he actually bought me lunch since I found it for him smile Thus let me rephrase that: Thank you for lunch! 10945

  2. These days of austerity plus relative anxiety about running into debt, a lot of people balk against the idea of using a credit card to make purchase of merchandise or even pay for a vacation, preferring, instead to rely on this tried and trusted method of making repayment – cash. However, in case you have the cash on hand to make the purchase in full, then, paradoxically, that is the best time for them to use the credit cards for several causes.

  3. 950035 392248Yours is really a prime example of informative writing. I feel my students could learn a lot from your writing style and your content material. I may possibly share this write-up with them. 281980

  4. 251588 725942Wow, great blog layout! How long have you been blogging for? you make blogging appear effortless. The overall look of your web internet site is fantastic, let alone the content material! 445688

  5. I have noticed that sensible real estate agents almost everywhere are warming up to FSBO Advertising and marketing. They are recognizing that it’s more than simply placing a sign post in the front place. It’s really with regards to building associations with these sellers who at some time will become buyers. So, when you give your time and energy to assisting these traders go it alone : the “Law connected with Reciprocity” kicks in. Great blog post.

  6. 920720 799017Incredible! This blog looks just like my old 1! It is on a entirely different topic but it has pretty much exactly the same layout and design. Wonderful choice of colors! 160204

  7. I’ve learned a few important things through your post. I would also like to convey that there may be situation where you will obtain a loan and do not need a cosigner such as a U.S. Student Aid Loan. But when you are getting that loan through a conventional banker then you need to be made ready to have a co-signer ready to allow you to. The lenders will base their very own decision on a few issues but the biggest will be your credit history. There are some lenders that will in addition look at your job history and choose based on this but in almost all cases it will be based on on your scores.

  8. Hi. Cool article. There is a problem with your web site in chrome, and you may want to check this… The browser is the market leader and a large section of other people will leave out your magnificent writing because of this problem.

  9. Very good blog you have here but I was wanting to know if you knew of any message boards that cover the same topics talked about here? I’d really love to be a part of online community where I can get opinions from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Thank you!

  10. May I just say what a relief to find a person that genuinely knows what they are talking about on the net. You certainly realize how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More and more people should read this and understand this side of your story. It’s surprising you’re not more popular given that you most certainly have the gift.

  11. Greetings! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
