Kids Have Rights:
The Kids Have Rights program is a program that educates and empowers students, school staff, parents and caregivers to recognize, prevent, and stop child sexual abuse.
What We Do:
Kids Have Rights accomplishes its mission by partnering and working collaboratively with area elementary schools to present body safety lessons during the school day that are engaging, child-centered, and age-appropriate.
KHR educators present a 30 – 60 minute lesson (dependent upon grade level) which is reinforced by subsequent mini-lessons taught by the classroom teacher. Classroom teachers are given an instructive video, an Educator’s Guide, and answer keys. They are taught the warning signs of child sexual abuse, how to effectively listen and respond appropriately to a disclosure of abuse, and how to report suspected abuse.
Supplemental materials are sent home so that parents/caregivers may work with their child to reinforce lessons and increase their knowledge and comfort in talking to their child about body safety. Parents/caregivers are taught the warning signs of child sexual abuse and how to listen and respond appropriately to their child.
1 in 7 girls and 1 in 25 boys are sexually abused
75% of childhood sexual abuse is thought to go unreported
