Parenting Safe Children

Parenting Safe Children empowers adults to keep children safe from sexual abuse. We educate parents and professionals through the Parenting Safe Children Workshop (online and in- person), where participants learn what makes children vulnerable to sexual abuse; how to talk with schools, sports programs, day care and places of faith about child safety; and what body- safety rules to teach children. Feather Berkower, LCSW, has been a leader in child sexual abuse prevention since 1985. Using a community-based approach, she has trained over 150,000 school children, parents, and professionals. Feather makes a difficult topic less scary, and consistently impresses audiences with her knowledge, commitment, and warmth. Feather is also the co-author of Off Limits, a parenting book with easy-to-follow guidelines for making children, homes, and communities off limits to child sexual abusers.  (Read More...)

We support researchers who are leading the way in identifying the causes of SIDS and stillbirth and collaborate with other organizations around the world who are doing the same.
