Our annual “I’m the Boss of Me” child sexual abuse prevention program will start it’s 13th season in January! This program is available to Grade Four classrooms in the Saskatoon school district, and is supported by both the Public and Catholic divisions. This gentle puppet show teaches children to understand what sexual abuse is, that it is not their fault if it happens, that it is important that they don’t hide the abuse or keep secrets about abuse, and that they should tell a trusted adult.
