    Dear Parents and Teachers,

    Friend Magazine, 2015/03 Mar

    Sometimes it’s hard for children to know when to talk to adults about something that is worrying them. And sometimes it may be hard for adults to start a conversation too! Consider reading the story “Telling Secrets” (page 44) with your children and talking through the tips on page 46. Encouraging open communication is one way we can protect our children.

    Safe sharing,

    The Friend
