The Safe Child Handbook outlines the top eight threats to children and parents-weather emergencies, kidnapping, terrorism, inappropriate media influence, drug and alcohol abuse, child abuse, school violence, and home safety-and shows how to be ready to face the most drastic situations with confidence. The Safe Child Handbook is filled with practical advice, activities for children, and techniques that will empower your whole family.
