Protecting Our Children

Thursday’s show was one of our best in recent memory. We really underscored the impact Hometown Radio can have in providing a forum for dialogue of community issues. Thanks again to Mayor O’Malley for coming down from Atascadero and to Carrie Burton from Morro Bay.

As promised, here’s the information about the public forum on sexual predators. I’m trying to get Dr. Todd to appear on the show next week to follow up on the discussion with Carrie.

Don’t know about you, but I thought Carrie was very reasonable in her concerns about a lack of a fence at Del Mar Elementary School. If money is not the ikssue, then why not build a fence? Why can’t we keep our children safe?

Protecting Children and Youth

From Sexual Predators

presentation by

Todd Thies, Ph.D.

We would all like to see a society where no one has to worry about sexual abuse of children. But as long as this problem exists, it must be discussed so children are empowered to protect themselves and parents are aware of this sensitive and complex issue.

Dr. Thies has worked with sexual offenders for over 12 years. He is an expert in how Sex Offenders think and how they manipulate children. This presentation is for parents, those who work with children, and anyone who wants to help protect children from sexual abusers. By attending this presentation, participants will be able to:

Gain an understanding of which children are most at risk
Recognize if a child is a victim of sexual abuse
Identify how offenders select child victims
Know what to teach children so they will not be victims
Learn how to protect children from internet perpetrators
How offenders groom their victims to comply with sexual requests
