Children are on their own when predators attack or deceive. They must know how to recognize deceptive behavior that means danger and how to avoid or remove themselves from dangerous encounters, whether from a stranger, acquaintance, or relative. We, modern humans, are the only species that does not instinctively and systematically train its young in survival skills.
Most children are a blank slate when it comes to personal safety. If they are given the knowledge on how to handle a dangerous situation, then they will not have to guess at what to do. In a life or death situation, do we want our children guessing?
As the mother of an 21-year-old boy, I can tell you that if you dropped him in a war zone in Iraq without training, his survival would be unlikely. But with training and a support network, there is a very high probability that he would return home. So why do we drop off our young each day, unprepared, and drive off hoping everything will be OK?
We should not, however, underestimate children. They are amazing. A 4-year-old can step out of a life-threatening situation - IF they know what to do. They just have to be taught the right knowledge. Knowledge that can be taught through a method that ensures automatic, involuntary recall of right action in a crisis -- The Yello Dyno Method™, -- a non-fearful and musically-based system.
You can make the difference. Bring Yello Dyno to your airwaves and publications. You win, our children win, and the predators lose. Now, that would really be a newsworthy story, wouldn't it?
I look forward to hearing from you.
