Austin, Texas (PressExposure) March 31, 2008 -- The problem with keeping your children safe? They tend to tune their parents out, they don't think the way their parents do, and most of the products out there are directed at only one aspect of child safety and fail to address other important issues children need to be aware of to keep themselves safe. With a new production from its series "The Ultimate Video Guide ", InterSkillMedia attempts to address these problems. The new DVD, entitled "Kids..How To Stay Safe" focuses on a wide variety of situations where staying safe is important, and is presented by child actors and from a child's perspective.
Of course, any parent's worst fear is that their child will be abducted and/or molested. New headlines of missing or abused children appear with frightening regularity, and all too often have unhappy endings. Because it is one of the most important ways parents should protect their children, most of the child safety products on the market address this situation, educating both parents and children on how to protect themselves. Schools address the issue as well. Most children know they should "never talk to strangers", and most know that predators are a sad reality in their world today.
Unfortunately, even if your child is among the relatively large percent that is never confronted with abduction or abuse, there are many more situations out there that can threaten your child. Internet safety is important even if the child never meets a predator in person, and playground bullying affects huge numbers of children every day. The new DVD from InterSkillMedia addresses not only the critical issues of abduction and predators, but also the everyday situations many children face, such as ... internet use, bullying, and coming home alone. Using child narrators and actors exclusively, a variety of techniques are used to capture and maintain the interest of the elementary school child while the important information is presented. Using relatively short segments, children can absorb and retain the information, and the entertaining format will leave them asking to watch again and again, ensuring retention and providing a good basis for discussion with parents and teachers, and well as a foundation for additional safety training a parent may want to provide.
