Tea Tree Tells
Tea Tree Tells a program based around child abuse prevention. Using Tea Tree the turtle, the children learn about the importance of trusted adults, feelings, body parts (including private areas), boundaries, secrets. The program gives the staff a lesson plan to follow and activities for the children to help with their understanding. A brief excerpt from the program: “Child sexual abuse is a serious problem within our society and occurs more frequently than people realize. In order to protect children, it is important to understand what child sexual abuse is, how it happens, and how to recognize behavior that may signal a child in distress. Research shows that teaching children safety skills during their early years increases the likelihood they would disclose sexual abuse.”
