How and Why To Talk With Your Kids About Guns (Even If You Don’t Own Guns): A Free Safety Presentation for Chesnut Charter Elementary School Parents, 2/19 @ 6:00PM

Talking With Kids

Dozens of children are killed and dozens or hundreds more are injured in firearms-related accidents in the United States each year. With between a third and a half of American households containing a gun, guns present as much a risk to children’s safety as prescription drugs, swimming pools, electrical outlets, and crossing the street. Most firearms-related accidents involving children can be avoided. In the same way that parents teach their children about those other risks, so we should educate their children about the risks guns pose and how to avoid them. This applies equally to parents who own guns and parents who do not.

This brief multimedia presentation provides parents with specific talking points and pointers to educational resources they can use to discuss this challenging and difficult topic for three different age groups – preschool to third grade, fourth to sixth grades, and seventh grade and up.

Please note this presentation date is for Chesnut Charter Elementary School parents. If you would like to bring this free safety presentation to your school, house of worship, or community association, please use the Contact tab at the top of the page to contact the presenter.

Free Presentation: How to Talk To Your Kids About Guns (Even If You Don’t Own Guns) – 11/6 or 12/3, Sandy Springs

From a child-safety perspective, guns are as much a reality as swimming pools, electrical outlets, matches or poisonous household cleaners. In the same way that parents teach their children about those other risks, so they should educate their children about the risks guns pose and how to avoid them. This applies to parents who love guns, to parents who hate guns and everyone in between.

Please join me at Sandy Springs Shooting Range for either of two free presentations of “How to Talk to Your Kids About Guns (Even if You Don’t Own Guns)”. This 30-minute multimedia program provides parents – all parents, regardless of whether they themselves own guns – with constructive actions and useful resources that can help reduce the risk that their child will be injured or killed in a firearms accident.
