Just mention the words “Home Alone,” and children
think of the excitement depicted in the movies of the same name. The reality of
being home alone can evoke fear and anxiety in many children. Whether left
alone for an hour after school or several hours a day during the summer,
children should feel comfortable being alone. This workshop will address several topics relating to being “Home Alone”, including personal safety tips, stranger danger, basic first aid, fire
safety, handling the unexpected, internet safety, dealing with loneliness and
boredom, storm safety, dealing with siblings, as well as, trust and honesty. Bring a snack.
