Sadly all you have to do is watch a few minutes of the news or scroll through Facebook and Twitter to realize that the world is becoming a scary place. The statistics of people being attacked is staggering and only continuing to rise. The only way to not live in fear is to make sure that you are equipped to handle any situation that arises. That is why Damsel in Defense has created an entire business with products to equip, empower and educate women to protect themselves and their families. Recently they have added a new line of products geared towards helping children learn how to protect themselves too.
Independent Damsel in Defense Pro Deb Bartlett sent the Safe Hearts Books and Parent Guide for inclusion in the 2016 Diva Holiday Gift Guide. Approximately 1.3 million children are sexually assaulted each year in America, and studies have shown that 95% of those children know their offender. The goal of the Damsel in Defense Safe Hearts Books is to help you empower your children to take ownership over their own hearts and bodies and raise their awareness and ability to protect themselves against anyone who tries to harm them.
As a parent, I know the importance of keeping my girls safe, but I also know I can not be around every moment of their day. I have struggled with how to make my children appropriately aware of the dangers around them without either making them fearful or having to explain far more than I felt comfortable with topics such as sex. This is one of those topics none of us want to talk about – but by not talking about it, we can not protect our children. I love that the Damsel in Defense Safe Hearts Team has found a way to broach these difficult topics in a way that makes it easier for parents to handle and children to understand. The Damsel in Defense Safe Hearts Defenders help children understand what is ok, what is not ok, and what to do should a situation arise that is not ok.
