Mission: To significantly reduce incidences of child abuse and neglect
Methodology: Educating all youth on the stresses and responsibility of parenting.
Let’s Stop the Cycle of Child Abuse With Education That Makes an Impact
COPE24 has put together, with input from the Missouri Department of Education, a 2-week Parenting Skills Program to be presented in classrooms around the nation. Click Here to see clips of each video.
COPE24 is pleased to announce a new documentary series entitled ELEMENTS. Each single documentary, produced on a yearly schedule, will focus on one common element often observed when reviewing cases of child abuse and/or neglect. Our initial production will focus on the topic of immaturity and will be released later this year. Additional topics we intend to tackle are drugs/alcohol, domestic violence, absent fathers and mental health. Each documentary will focus on the real impact on the life of a child. Watch for the release of our next video (untitled) in the fall of 2015!
I decided to have Rene speak to ALL of my classes, not just those relating to parenting, because as she puts it, “almost all of you will become a parent at some point in your life.” This was a great supplement to the curriculum that I am using and can be woven in at multiple points to show students doses of reality and what behaviors are to be expected at different stages of parenting. I highly recommend this program and inviting her as a speaker at your school. —
