SAFE partners with Talk Sooner campaign

The SAFE Collaborative has partnered with a new organization, the Talk Sooner campaign for a new project that encourages parents to begin having important conversations with their children starting at a young age. Talk Sooner gives parents talking points and ideas for conversations at all age ranges. To help parents and caregivers remember to have these conversations, SAFE has sent out postcards to all students in grades 3-5 throughout Char-Em ISD schools. Yard signs were placed at schools and organizations in late April 2019 as well.  Visit www.talksooner.org/parents to get started in learning how and what to say to your children, and when.
