    Sure, learning about paedophilia is uncomfortable, but I'm sure it's a heck of a lot easier than actually dealing with being a victim of paedophilia. I'd rather my daughter be taught how to deal with these situations... how to say no, that she has the right to say no, etc.

    As much as I want to hope she'd come to me and tell me if anything like that happened, many parents hope that and yet their kids don't feel comfortable coming to them... I'd like for her to learn she has other avenues than just telling me...
    Good point. I also want my kids knowing others are willing to listen.

    Yes I would. DD's school ran a workshop over 4 weeks about this kind of stuff and I happily let her go. She came home and talked to me about what she learnt and I was happy with everything they had discussed. She was in kinergarten, so 5-6 year olds.

    OP is the show by Bravehearts? With a lion as the mascot? If so, my eldest has been to that show and it is AWESOME! They explain everything SO well and in a way that is different to the same old stuff.

    I've not read all of the responses, but my DD attended something similar (the Bravehearts one) last year (Kindergarten, for the 4-5yo) at school.

    It's all very age appropriate and is something very valuable as not all children are talked to about these things.

    Parents aren't allowed to attend for valid reasons, this is all about the children and keeping themselves safe, if a parent attends, well, who's to say that parent isn't guilty and now has the tools to get around these teachings.

    The secrets part is all about NOT keeping secrets, which frankly, I don't allow secrets in our house anyway, regardless of what the whisperings are about. It's letting children know that if someone does something to you that you don't like, and they tell you to keep it a secret, it's still absolutely okay to tell someone about it.

    I fully support programs like this, especially when child abuse is so rife.

    Yes I would let my children go with out me being there. Would like to have a booklet outlining what is being discussed to be prepared if they have any questions later.

    At first I thought no, but after reading all the replies I think yes, I would let her go.

    I've got a preppy princess atm and there is no way i'd allow her to go to a show like that without first seeing it myself. It sounds way to old for her.

    Yep I'd let my kids go!

    And I understand that parents are not allowed either. In many abuse cases the parents are the ones doing the abusing... I can see why they would keep it kids only
