Online Training: Stewards of Children

In addition to being an online provider, I am also an online consumer.  There is an awful lot of useful information out there on the web!  During some research I was doing on child sexual abuse I discovered a training called "Stewards of Children" on a site called Darkness to Light, a recognized site on the issue.  The training is billed as something for any average person to take (especially parents) to learn how to protect children from being abused.  It contains a lot of great material and good ideas; I don't think there is anything there that can't be found elsewhere on the internet, although it's nice to have it all compiled in one place.  It takes a few hours to complete (you can do it over several days), and it costs $10.  If you want to save the ten-spot you can do your own reading; otherwise, it's certainly a helpful training to view.
(Note: I am not affiliated with Darkness to Light in any way.)


  1. Interesting post! I'm always looking for good materials to share with parents

    1. What kind of materials are you looking for? Perhaps I know of some other useful things...

    2. I don't have anything specific in mind. I just like to be familiar with materials on a range of topics, just in case families request something I haven't encountered before. This falls into that category, so I look forward to checking it out.

    3. Hello Emily,
      Here is a direct link to the Darkness to Light website, specifically "Tools for Parents & Individuals":
