This year Timberlin Creek Elementary will be using the MBF Child Safety Matters Program from the Monique Burr Foundation for Children. The goal of this state-mandated curriculum is to help keep your child safe.
This program empowers children to spot and respond to bullying, cyberbullying, child abuse, relationship abuse, digital abuse, and other digital dangers. Most importantly, it teaches that adults are responsible for children’s safety. The Program is based on the latest research and has been reviewed and endorsed by national experts.
Why does your child need a safety program?
» 10% of children are abused before their 18th birthday
» 14% of children have been solicited online
» 28% of students have been bullied
» 90% of children between 8 and 16 years have viewed explicit material online
