Making a Difference for Children to stay safe!

October 4, 2010

Breakthrough Options goal and passion is to protect children from the “grooming” of sexual predators.

There are lots of organisation helping those who have been sexually abused, and who rescue children from abusive situations but there appears to be little help available to get the child armed to protect themselves from sexual “grooming.” Therefore they have no frame of reference to know that it is harmful to them, and the harmful experience of sexual abuse will leave them with terrible emotional traumas to deal with as teens and adults.

It makes sense that we should get to the children and empower them before the predator does. As parents and caregivers we don’t tell them about sexual predators because we don’t know how to tell them or we think that it may make the child scared of all adults if we teach them.

Simply put, we teach them about electricity, and the sea and crossing roads and stranger danger etc. yet they continue to swim, cross a road, speak to strangers and swim in the sea. However they do these things with knowledge that there are risks and we teach them the risk to look out for.

This concept is at the core of my business; teach the caregivers to teach the children to self-protect.

I do this through seminars/training workshops and books. “Webs of Deceit” is about how sexual predators “groom” adults and their children and “Bert the Butterfly” is a tool for caregivers to teach their children self-protective behaviours.

The Seminars are for parent groups, fostercare/adoption agencies, abuse organisations, churches and community organisation.

Breakthrough Options seeks to serve the community and is careful to:

• approach the subject matter with dignity, awareness and purpose.

• help on another to form a protective barrier around our children.

• endeavor to help the listener understand who the perpetrators are and how to protect our children from being targeted and controlled by them.

• bring an understanding to such an overwhelming subject and downsize it to manageable tools to protect our children.

• use my personal journey, peppered with anecdotes, to bring out the simple truths of predatory and vulnerable behaviors.

• Assure the listener that we can change this tide of evil from destroying our children and the community
