Preparing Children 10-12 Years to Be Safe, When Alone at Home
The I’m Home Program is designed to help children aged 10 to 12, to be safe, when alone at home, before and after school. The goal is to support parents in preparing their children to successfully transition from a before and after-school program, to safe, home-based self care. Parents and children learn easy to follow guidelines that help them to set up their own rules, in a fair and positive manner.
The I’m Home Program is provided in partnership with the London Public Library and is conveniently offered at various neighbourhood libraries.
Children learn how to:
- respond to a stranger
- deal with a bully
- be safe walking to and from school
- follow important house rules
- handle basic first aid and home emergency situations
- feel confident, competent, safe
What Parents Say:
“It touches a lot of issues and opened the door to communicate with my child.”
“I now know what needs to be discussed to help my daughter feel confident staying home.”
