9781578869718: Keeping Kids Safe, Healthy, and Smart

Perhaps the most challenging and important role that adults play in society is that of raising children. Every parent and teacher hopes to help children develop into healthy, caring, and intelligent adults. Keeping Kids Safe, Healthy, and Smart is designed for all adults who interact with kids-whether they be parents, teachers, or other caregivers-and provides specific suggestions for keeping children safe from hidden and open dangers wherever they spend time.

This book is organized around three different themes of major threats and hidden dangers to children in our country: threats in school spaces (e.g., in classrooms, on buses, on playgrounds, and on sports teams); threats in cyberspace (bullying or harassment and child predators or child pornography), threats in other spaces where children work and play (intrapersonal and interpersonal violence including a wide range of threats such as self-mutilation, accidents, abuse, environmental threats, drugs, and mental illness).

About the Author:

Kimberly Williams is a professor of education at Hobart and William Smith Colleges in Geneva, New York.

Marcel Lebrun is a professor of special education at Plymouth State University in Plymouth, New Hampshire.

Review:

Focusing on children's safety is crucial today. Families are being bombarded from all sides, and they need a book like this to provide a comprehensive resource to confront these challenges. If each parent or child who is exposed to this book learns just one thing, the impact will reverberate throughout the school and the community. (Michael A. Morgan, Superintendent of Schools in Exeter, New Hampshire)

This comprehensive book combines keen scholarship with practical considerations for child safety. The ecology of risk is carefully examined and suggestions on how to keep children from harm are grounded in that analysis. It is written with an educator's mind and a mother's (or father's) heart. (Kenneth Corvo, professor in the School of Social Work at Syracuse University in New York)

This book helps us as parents and educators understand and support children as they grow, learn, and develop in today's ever-changing world. (Dennise Maslakowski, Associate Vice President of the College of Graduate Studies at Plymouth State University in New Hampshire)

Today there are so many issues, questions, and challenges related to the safety and lives of children and youth: suicide, cyber bullying, schoolyard violence, ADHD, drugs and alcohol, abuse, and many more serious topics. Williams and Lebrun have written a comprehensive book that addresses these concerns and provides logical, yet sensitive, suggestions for readers. Websites, background information, and actual accounts are included to guide the reader in understanding and dealing with the various situations relevant to contemporary life of children presented in this worthwhile book. Parents, teachers, child care workers and all those who advocate for the protection of our kids will find the contents relevant, timely, and useful. This one's a keeper. (Carolyn Crippen, Assistant Dean of Education at the University of Manitoba in Canada)
