Safe Kids & Moral Dilemmas

Standard

All of us want to keep our kids safe… all of us know in the back of our minds the potential threats to children in our world… but do all of us know how to prepare our kids to stay safe in this world?

When a friend posted recently that her kids had potentially been “tagged” at a Costco by potential abductors my “Mama Bear” instincts started causing stomach upset and emotional distress for days.  I talked to some trusted people about it, and was reminded of the idea to”role play” or imagine scenarios with our kids.  One even said, “Make it a game.”

So… being the “non-spontaneous” type, I knew I would struggle to come up with scenarios off the cuff.  So, I took her literally… and made a game!  It’s not all “Stranger Danger” scenarios, and it’s not all serious either, so as not to cause fear.  There are 48 unique cards in the deck including stranger danger topics, manners, kindness, obedience, and some thrown in just to lighten the mood.

Simply print the pdf (found here) on card stock and cut out the cards.

I hope you enjoy and benefit!  Here are some sample cards from the game.

My passion is natural living, cleaning, teaching, being. I hope you'll join me as I discover new things and pursue the best in whatever life throws at me. Most of what I post will be homeschool related as that is my focus now and in the years to come, but I have posted and will probably post more about cloth diapering, natural foods, and clean living as well. Enjoy and I hope you find something useful here. :)
