I have to agree, especially working in an educative role within our community. Police education officers spend many hours working in local schools providing young people with information and strategies to help them make positive choices, and to keep them safe. It is a sad but true fact that some children may well become the victims of physical or sexual abuse. Our Keeping Ourselves Safe programme teaches young people a wide range of practices they can use when interacting with other people, and encourages children who have been or are being abused to seek help. Older children are taught about the dangers of drug and alcohol use and practise ways to resist drugs when they are offered. Throughout their years at school children receive lessons in road safety to keep them safe as pedestrians, passengers, cyclists and later as drivers. It is hugely important for parents to make themselves aware of the programmes being taught at school, and discuss these with their children. This is a good time to reinforce and add important family rules and values. Parents too, must keep afoot of trends and ensure that they are well equipped to encourage and support their teenagers through what are often thought of as ''the difficult years''. This can be achieved by attending seminars and courses offered by schools, parent support organisations and community groups, in preparation for the years ahead. Networking with other parents is another important way to share information. This can provide both support and ideas to deal with the situations that our growing young people can present.
