Question and answer
why is it important to work with children & young people to ensure they have strategies to protect themselves & make decisions about safety
It is important to 'equip' (or empower) children to ensure they have strategies to protect themselves and make decisions because if they don't they may be vulnerable to abuse (of any sort). From the outset we want to help children/yp gain [ confidence to speak up - either to say no, and keep safe and not putting themselves in vulnerable or dangerous places. - young people who may be old enough (or perhaps young but those allowed out/roam etc ) and failing this we need to get across that children should not keep secrets but tell a 'safe' person. They should be taught that noone should take
advantage of them/do things that they know is not right. Children/yp need to have good self-esteem and confidence and a good self image (so important to promote this from a young age) so they know they are important, should be respected by all and know that there are trusted adults their to help them and keep them safe - but that may be another question in ypur unit. It is important that children have strategies to protect themselves and keep themselves safe as they are usually on their own when they find themselves in an unsafe position. ]
