Here is what safetyNETkids program participants, parents, counselors, law enforcement and others have to say about the safetyNETkids curriculum, video series and effective, non-threatening teaching methods:
“We have enjoyed incorporating safetyNETkids into our Prevention curriculum here at Gulf Coast Kid’s House, and bringing the program to the elementary schools in our county. The students really seem to enjoy the presentation, and their teachers always have positive feedback. The DVD makes it easy for the facilitators to highlight the most important parts of each lesson, and the kids do retain the information they learn. The safetyNETkids program teaches children the real dangers they may face in today’s world in a not-so-scary way, and empowers them to stand up for themselves and make good choices. We look forward to the continued success of safetyNETkids in helping keep the children of our community safe.”

Prevention Coordinator, Gulf Coast Kids House
“This truly is a great program to empower children who are in kindergarten through 5th grade. The Safety NET Kids videos enable adults to introduce dialouge with children concerning these difficult issues”
Education Coordinator, Children’s Advocacy Center
“As a parent, I feel safetyNETkids is a great instructional tool for children of all ages. It’s a great way to teach children about handling themselves when faced with confrontation. I would highly recommend this video to all families. The safety of our children is of most importance. It’s better to take a proactive stance.”
Mom and safetyNETkids Advocate
“The safetyNETkids, “No Easy Targets” production is clearly the best, most concise, approach toward educating parents and their children regarding not only the kinds of situations to view as instant warning/danger signs, but in knowing how to react quickly in each instance, as well.”
D.E. “Rusty” Crowe, II
Tennessee State Senator
“Without a doubt, it is an excellent tool that comprehensively covers aspects of the safety of our children during very vulnerable times”.

“I have been an educator for fourteen years and have struggled to find a program which is age appropriate and effective. Your personal safety program is the best I have seen. It provides children with the knowledge they need to protect themselves in a way that is non-threatening and exciting. The program is so versatile that it can be used with the youngest child yet holds the attention of older students”.
School Counselor, M.A.
“I can’t begin to tell you the acceptance I get from your programs. Usually in a period of 20 minutes you lose an audience of children, but both programs seem to keep the kids attention and they actually retain the material. As the presenter, I feel very comfortable with this material. Other programs usually leave allot to be desired. With No Easy Targets, the presentation flows easy from start to finish. But like I mentioned earlier, the kids retain the material which I believe is the biggest benefit. I have kids from last year come up to me and recite parts of the program to me. If I had to describe the No Easy Targets and Bullies program it would be, “It works”. On behalf of the parents, teachers and chlidren of my community, we thank you.
