A dynamic program for empowering children to protect themselves

In Raising Kids Who Can Protect Themselves, Debbie and Mike Gardner share their decades of self-defense experience to show parents how to teach their children courage―the trait needed to make brave, smart, and safe choices, no matter what their age, no matter what the situation. Raising Kids Who Can Protect Themselves helps families foster courage in their children at an early age so that it becomes an inherent trait, rather than a situational need. The book features:

  • Age-appropriate methods to instill courage in children without creating fear
  • Courage coaching as a way to create a “family” defense system
  • Lifesaving skills, such as quality eye contact, voice control, breathing, control of inappropriate crying, development of positive self-talk, and space awareness
  • Ways to reduce children’s vulnerability
  • Site-specific survival strategies, from parties to the mall to sports practice

Every time I watch the nightly news, I thank God my wife and children have been trained by Debbie and Mike Gardner. Please, please, please read this book as a family. You will learn how to avoid the most dangerous situations and fight your way out of the rest. We live in a very different world today―arm your family with the power of this book.
-Cris Collinsworth, Sports Commentator for Fox/HBO Sports

This book is brave, bold and one of the most important books I’ve read in a long time. A must for parents everywhere.
-Doug Hall, Author of Jump Start Your Business Brain

From the Back Cover:

A DYNAMIC PROGRAM FOR EMPOWERING CHILDREN OF ANY AGE TO PROTECT THEMSELVES FROM HARM

In this invaluable--and possibly life-saving--book, self-defense experts, former law enforcement professionals, and parents Debbie and Mike Gardner show you how to teach your kids to protect themselves when you aren't there to take care of them. Faced with a threat or compromising situation, your children will draw upon an arsenal of action techniques they've practiced at home, techniques that will help them defend their bodies and personal space, and move to safety.

Discover everyday ways to fortify your children with the skills needed to survive a threatening situation, including:

  • Age-appropriate methods for overcoming fear, reducing vulnerability, and building self-protection instincts
  • Courage coaching as a way to create a "family" defense system
  • Life-saving skills, such as quality eye contact, voice control, breathing, control of inappropriate crying, development of positive self-talk, and space awareness
  • Site-specific survival strategies, from parties to the mall to sports practice
  • Five foundations of raising self-reliant and safe kids, including courage-building activities in the home, and how to create a family "courage" vocabulary

In building a family-defense plan with your kids, you'll provide your children with the emotional strength, problem-solving skills, and self-reliance necessary to make smart, brave, and safe choices--no matter what their age, no matter what the situation.
