learn how to protect your child against abuction, abuse at Savannah safety eventThe Next Generation’s first Educational Social Event of the year is coming up on Tuesday, May 21st from 6 to 8pm at the Savannah Golf Club.
This year, The Next Generation has partnered with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and will be hosting a Take 25 event!
You’re invited to attend to find out protective measures to help keep our children safer.
Dr. Margee McKenna will present practical advise to equip parents and caregivers to effectively talk to their children about ways to protect themselves from abduction and abuse.
Many of us take for granted communicating with our kids about safety and think that no one will ever abduct our children.  However, it could happen to any one of us. More than 2,000 children are reported as missing to law enforcement every day. Out of over 7,000 confirmed attempted abductions, analysis shows the following:
69% of victims are female
41 % are between the ages of 10-14
35% occur while a child is walking along to/from school, the school bus or riding a bicycle
35% occur between the hours of 2pm through 7pm on a weekday
Suspects: 96% are male, 48% are white
72 % involve a vehicle
Please come to this event and learn about how to communicate with your young children about these topics.
Organizers will also provide resources from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, including Conversation Starters and Child ID kits.  Please spread the word about this event.
Anyone is welcome and it is a free event.  There will be a cash bar.  Please RSVP to rsvp@nextgenerationsavannah.com by May 17.
