Awareness

An important mandate of the Missing Children’s Network is to sensitize and educate the public about children’s personal safety. Every year, the organization marks the following occasions:

Safer Internet Day

In February of each year, Safer Internet Day is organized by Insafe to promote safer and more responsible use of online technology and mobile phones, especially among children and young people across the world.

Missing Children’s Month

In 1986, the Solicitor General of Canada proclaimed May 25th as National Missing Children’s Day. Over the years, the Missing Children’s Network has adopted the month of May not only to raise awareness about the plight of missing children in Quebec but also to inform parents about what they can do in order to better protect their children both in the real world and on-line.

Runaway Prevention Month

With over 5,000 cases of runaways reported to police, the Missing Children’s Network decreed November to be Runaway Prevention Month. Every year, the organization dedicates this month to raising awareness about the plight of runaway youth in our province and provides families and educators with resources and tools in order to decrease the occurrence of youth running away from home or a group home.

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: bit.ly/2A2Yu7TÀ 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 : bit.ly/2zRPllV
