Schools have taught children road safety and domestic safety skills for many years, and are now being asked to teach personal safety skills. This is a handbook for teachers and counsellors working with primary-aged children, offering guidance and practical suggestions on all aspects of this issue. The authors outline the need for child protection, how to work with parent, ways of developing a curriculum, and practical suggestions for classroom exercises. They explain how to manage children's use of the Internet and the particular needs of children with disabilities. The book includes illustrations and exercises which can be copied for use with children in class.
