Happy Bear

“Happy Bear” is an interactive 30-minute play that introduces the basics of recognizing, resisting, and reporting child abuse. The presentation teaches children what welcome, and unwelcome touches are. Children learn that they can say “no” and move away if someone gives them an unwelcome touch. Most importantly, they learn who safe adults are and that they need to tell a safe adult if anyone gives them an unwelcome touch. This presentation is appropriate for children pre-k through 1st grade. Sunflower House created “Happy Bear”.
