For those who had children in the first survival skills class last spring, we will touch on several topics we introduced, but go more in-depth in learning and have more time for practicing those skills in this class. Also, if your child has never taken a survival skills class this will be a good introduction for them on the importance of being prepared, staying calm and using good common sense. Due to the content, this class is not suitable for kids under 7 years old or even those who are older than 7 but are not mature enough to handle the content. We will talk about difficult situations and be practicing skills that require self-control and the ability to follow instructions. If you feel your child is not ready we will defer to your judgment. If you have any questions about the class please feel free to contact me.
