RESPECT! Campaign Provides Tools Related To Respectful Relationships

From a press release from the Family Violence Prevention Fund:

The Family Violence Prevention Fund (FVPF) and Macy's have developed RESPECT! Tools a collection of tips, information and conversation starters to help parents, coaches, teachers, mentors and others talk to children about healthy, loving, respectful relationships. RESPECT! Tools is part of the FVPF's RESPECT! Campaign aimed at helping adults talk to young people about healthy relationships so that they can help to shape a world free of relationship violence. [...]

The RESPECT! Campaign is the Family Violence Prevention Fund's (FVPF) latest initiative to advance a national movement to promote healthy relationships and stop relationship violence through positive role modeling and respect education. Sponsored nationally by Macy's, the RESPECT! Campaign encourages individuals to help prevent and end domestic and dating violence, sexual assault, and other forms of relationship abuse by talking with young people early and often about respect, and modeling that behavior in their own relationships. Through conversation guides for parents, lesson plans for teachers, tools for coaches, and other instructional Respect Tools, the campaign offers a variety of resources to support moms, dads, teachers, coaches, and other living, breathing role models who have critical roles to play in helping our sons and daughters shape a world that is free of relationship violence.

This is a great idea because, Lord knows, those of us who are child abuse survivors did not get these healthy messages when we were growing up. So, it may be challenging to teach them to our own kids. Thanks for letting us use this for The Blog Carnival Against Child Abuse. Another excellent post!
