Yello Dyno Safety Party

Yello Dyno Safety Party

Published: August 15, 2018

If you’d like to teach your kids about safety without making them unnecessarily anxious, count on this program led by a cuddly yellow dinosaur! Its approach is accessible but effective, based on the Nobel Prize-winning research of Dr. Roger Sperry and the internationally recognized research on children in crisis of Dr. Bruce Perry. The program has educated more than three million children since being introduced in 1987.

The Yello Dyno curriculum features video clips, is music driven, and is intended to benefit children from 4-12 years old. It addresses ways for young people to avoid the impact of bullies and cyberbullies, violent children and adults, drug pushers, kidnappers, abusers, and predators. It does this by teaching youngsters to identify deceptive behavior in others, to react to their own instincts, and to build self confidence.

To have your child participate in this important training, please call the library at 828.466.6821 to register. A special permission slip explaining what children will learn is available and is required before attending. The seminar takes place Monday, August 20 at 5 pm at the St. Stephens Branch Library.
