Triangle mom launches website on child advocacy, personal safety
The website aims to educate parents and other adults about child safety at all levels of society.Posted — Updated
I wanted to share that local mom Amy Tiemann, the author of a couple of books who has been working on child safety issues, has launched a new website with colleague Irene van der Zande.
DoingRightbyOurKids.com aims to educate parents and others adults about child safety at all levels of society. The two tackle everything from school bullying to the abuse scandal in the Catholic Church to decisions schools or youth sports leagues, for instance, can make to put child safety first. They seek to provide positive tools for addressing safety problems.
“There is a social movement for change from the grassroots up to the highest levels of leadership. We have reached a tipping point in favor of advocacy to prevent bullying, and other forms of abuse and safety problems, and to teach children safety skills and how to ask adults for help. It is up to each of us as adults to ask how we can support kids and teens to create environments where everybody feels safe,” Tiemann says in a release about the site launch.
