Help Us Protect Our Youth!

The Missing Children’s Network is excited to be a part of #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that is fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.

On December 3rd, we invite you to join this growing movement and come together with your family, friends and co-workers and help us raise $5,000 so that we can teach 1,000 youngsters to stay safe through our #keepmesafe program in elementary schools.

Donate today and don’t forget to follow us on Facebook and invite your network to donate, as well as like and share our regular updates about this important campaign. The Missing Children’s Network has helped tens of thousands of children stay safe. On December 3rd, with your support, we can reach more!

We believe that every child deserves a safe childhood. If you agree, let’s come together and make this a reality. Our youth is counting on us!

Thank you!
Pina Arcamone, Director General

As we head into the holiday season, many parents may be confronted with that awkward moment when their child refuses to either sit on Santa’s lap or hug and kiss a family member.

Many parents are not prepared to deal with these situations: Should you insist that he sit on Santa’s lap? Kiss Grandma? Hug Uncle Bill? To spare a relative’s feelings, many parents will urge children to endure or even return unwanted physical affection.

But, is this the wisest thing to do? Here’s why we shouldn’t force our children to hug relatives or other adults:À l’arrivée du congé du Temps des Fêtes, plusieurs parents font face au refus de leur enfant de s’asseoir sur les genoux du Père Noël ou encore de faire la bise à un proche.

Comme parent, il est possible que vous ne sachiez pas comment réagir dans une telle situation : dois-je obliger mon enfant à s’asseoir sur le père Noël? Embrasser grand-maman? Faire un câlin à oncle Paul? Certains parents vont tenter de convaincre leur enfant d’agir contre son gré, mais est-ce la bonne chose à faire?

Voici quelques suggestions pour comprendre pourquoi nous devrions respecter les limites des enfants :

“It’s a privilege to be able to contribute to your efforts in keeping our children safe.  When I saw the stats particularly for Quebec, it really hit home the urgency to continue to educate our kids on the hazards that exist and ways to keep themselves safe.”


Since I have been donating to your organization, I have been very lucky not to have lost any of my children and I now have 4 grandchildren!  I will always continue to support this cause that is very dear to me. Losing a child for a mere 20 seconds is such a dreadful feeling, and I could never ever imagine feeling like this until my child was returned home.  I wish that so many other parents could share the same blessing I have had. My heart goes out to everyone who has a missing child. Keep up the fantastic work Pina , please. You and your team are amazing!!
