Sparked important conversations

Loved how engaging it is

The Brain Defense: Digital Safety Curriculum is one of the most important child protection measures that we take at our school. It is easy and comfortable to teach to our students. Not only is it pertinent to what they need to learn at this age, but the students and parents love how engaging it is. I wish every child, family, and school could protect themselves with training like this.

Parents were appreciative

Parents were appreciative of the Brain Defense: Digital Safety curriculum. The information and talking points sent home about the lessons here at school gave them the opportunity and tools to discuss a topic they wanted to discuss with their children, but were uncertain on how to do so.

Spurs much-needed convos

Parents are desperate for concepts and language like this to help their children. They would benefit so much from this program - and I think it would spur much needed conversations between parents and children.

I felt comfortable teaching the lessons

The Brain Defense curriculum was easy to use and the short videos were very engaging! I felt very comfortable teaching my students about the dangers of pornography, particularly, because this program laid out vital information about how the brain works and how addiction occurs. My students found the topic interesting and the tips helpful! It is a program I will definitely use again!

Students need strategies

It is critical for kids and parents to talk about this subject. I think that the kids need some more strategies about how to deal with pornography when they come across it.
