Recommendations to Empower Children Now and in the Future
In – House Recommendations to reduce violent crime against children and adults might literally require an act of the U.S. Congress and/or a constitutional amendment, but we firmly believe our nation’s children are worth it! According to the U. S. Department of Human Services, about 5.8 million children are reported abused each year. Please unite with Hope For Children Foundation to protect our most vulnerable treasures!
Recommendations – National Academic Curriculum.
All children and adults deserve to feel confident to better protect themselves from abuse throughout their lives. Our recommendations to reduce violent crime are as follows: We recommend the integration of training focused on prevention of abuse into the national academic curriculum. While the specific details of the curriculum’s implementation will need to be worked out with various stake holders, teachers, parents, legal authorities, we suggest thirty minute daily classes from kindergarten through university level students to impact the decrease of violent crime.
Recommendations – Curriculum
We would also offer similar criteria curriculum to adults. These classes would address:
1. Building character, including respect for self and others;
2. Signs and symptoms of sexual assault/domestic violence and what to do if you suspect someone being abused;
3. Children – using proven age appropriate developed curricula in school through university level.
4. Adults – similar curricula offered to businesses, churches and interested community entities.
Recommendations – Course objectives
- Build Character;
- Instill respect for self, friends, family, teachers, coworkers, neighbors and the general public;
