On Feb. 10, Jewish Family Service will hold a two-hour bullying prevention workshop, PLAYITSAFE, for children ages 5-11 (or grades K-6) from 2 to 4 p.m. at Encinitas Community Center at 1104 Oakcrest Park Drive in Encinitas.
This workshop teaches children to be aware of their surroundings, project confidence, set boundaries, and trust their intuition. Children will be empowered with the knowledge and self-defense skills to keep them safe in any situation. PLAYITSAFE is a fun, interactive, age-appropriate workshop that teaches children to respond appropriately to the unique challenges they might face, including: bullies, teasing, meanness, stranger awareness, and abduction defense. PLAYITSAFE has taught more than 30,000 children since 2003 and has been featured on Dr. Phil and The Doctors.
Rabbi Josh Burrows, associate Rabbi at Temple Solel, and Rabbi Gabi Arad Burrows, director of Programming and Community Engagement for Waters of Eden, will present a brief lesson on the Jewish ethics and values regarding bullying.
The cost of the workshop is $10 per child, accompanying adults are free. Registration is eligible to North Coastal residents of Solana Beach, Encinitas, Carlsbad, Vista, San Marcos, and Oceanside. Spots are limited. RSVP by February 6, 2013 at www.jfssd.org/bullying.
