4 Fearless Steps Every Parent Can Take to Prevent Childhood Sexual Assault
Monday, September 9th
6 pm
The Pinedale Library Lovatt Room

About one in 7 girls and one in 25 boys will be sexually abused before they turn 181. And while talking to kids about childhood sexual abuse is never easy, prevention is an adult responsibility. In this evening presentation, parents and trusted caregivers will learn how to talk to their kids about sexual abuse prevention with courage and confidence. Presenter Carolyn Ruch is an author and founder of the Philadelphia based Rise And Shine Movement, an organization that works to equip parents with knowledge and confidence so they can educate and protect their children from childhood sexual abuse. Carolyn brings the experience of thirty years of parenting and has been equipping adults to protect kids for nearly a decade.

“Clear, concise, practical, tender, and real” are words commonly used to describe Carolyn’s presentation. Parents and trusted care givers will learn and even laugh as Carolyn weaves stories from her life and education from over a decade of prevention training. Carolyn will speak for 45 minutes, and after there will be a 15 minute question and answer session. Don't miss this important event.

For parents needing to bring children with them to the event, there will be snacks and trains, Legos, and coloring sheets for children in the kitchen area outside the Lovatt Room though there will be no supervision of the children by library staff.

Seeking a registered therapy dog and handler

We're looking for a few good... dogs! We are hoping to begin a new literacy program at the library that utilizes dogs to help kids enjoy reading. Reading therapy dogs can help kids read better because for children it can be easier to practice reading aloud with a dog rather than in front of classmates or parents, gaining confidence without fear or embarrassment of making mistakes. We are looking for a registered therapy animal to visit the library occasionally and sit or nap while kids read to it.

Would you like your dog to be a reading therapy dog at the Pinedale Library? Teton County Pet Partners, the local chapter of the national organization Pet Partners, can help you and your dog become a registered therapy team this spring. Begin the process by emailing info@tcpetpartners.org or by calling Kelly Chadwick at (307) 690-8532.
