Letter: Let kids know help is available


This is simple but might be a big help. Create labels that would attach to the inside of the doors of restroom stalls and in front of urinals in schools.

Do you feel safe at home? Do you feel safe at school? Is someone hurting you? Is someone in your home being hurt? Is someone touching you in ways you don’t like? Are you being bullied? Are you thinking of hurting yourself or someone else?

It would also include the appropriate phone numbers to call for help. Our kids need to know there is help for them and they are not alone.
