For Parents

DITTO’S KEEP SAFE ADVENTURE – INFORMATION FOR PARENTS

Ditto’s Keep Safe Adventure Show has been teaching children about personal safety in a fun, interactive and engaging way for more than a decade. Bravehearts’ team of psychologists, teachers, counsellors and criminologists have contributed to the composition of this pragmatic and well-researched child safety education program.

Ditto’s Keep Safe Adventure Show presents protective behaviour strategies for children in a fun and non-confrontational style with Ditto the friendly lion cub the star performer.

The performance is appropriately staged for child development in terms of the provision of a ‘character’ for younger children to relate to and Ditto cleverly uses his drama techniques to repeat and explain important information, interact, concept check and demonstrates how to keep safe.

The show has been independently evaluated (NB Consulting) with findings suggesting that the delivery of the principles and strategies presented can reduce the prevalence of not only CSA, but also other forms of abuse including family violence and bullying, in a range of settings.

What is Personal Safety Education?

Personal safety education is the teaching of a set of safety processes, which have a broad range of applications. Personal safety processes can assist with:

  • The prevention of bullying
  • The prevention of abuse and violence
  • In relation to people with disabilities or special needs
  • Support to safeguard children and vulnerable adults

Personal safety education is based on empowering an individual with both the knowledge and strategies to keep as safe from harm as possible. This can relate to forms of abuse, bullying or violence. In addition, when faced with a scenario that presents any form of personal danger or emergency, strategies are presented to assist with seeking appropriate help.

What is presented in the show?

Children are presented with a show structured around the program’s objectives, all relating to key safety criteria. Main learning objectives in the show include Ditto’s Three Rules:

  • We all have the right to feel safe with people
  • It’s OK to say ‘no’ if you feel unsafe or unsure
  • Nothing is so yucky that you can’t tell someone about it

The program objectives that relate to personal safety key criteria include:

  • Difference between ‘yes’ and ‘no’ feelings
  • Recognition of ‘warning signs’
  • Identification of ‘private parts’ and ‘privacy’
  • Help children identify language and feelings associated with secrets
  • There’s no secret that you can’t tell someone
  • Action children should take if they feel unsafe or unsure

To help solidify the messages from the show, our education team also provides an Activity Book for each student to take home and share with parents and carers.

The Ditto’s Keep Safe Adventure Activity Book provides a selection of games and activities that aim to teach younger children personal safety and continue to communicate the core messages presented in the Ditto Show.

Ditto’s Keep Safe Adventure Show has been aligned to the Australian National Curriculum ‘Health & Physical Education’ objectives. To support teachers with planning and subject coverage, please see our Curriculum Mapping for schools.
