Child Lures Prevention Program

What is Child Lures Prevention?
The Child Lures Prevention Program teaches life skills to protect children and youth from sexual exploitation, abduction, Internet crime, drugs and school violence. It provides an understanding of the specific Lures used in these crimes and teaches proven prevention strategies so children can readily take steps to remove themselves from potentially dangerous situations.

The Child Lures Community Awareness and Prevention Seminar:
  1. Unites parents, educators, law enforcement & community leaders in their efforts to safeguard children
  2. Pinpoints how predators target youngsters, (i.e. young children who smoke)
  3. Provides an overview of dated misinformation: Stranger-Danger, Code Words, Buddy System
  4. Equips the audience with proven Child Lures Prevention strategies
  5. Addresses Internet Crime, School Violence and the Lure of Drugs
  6. Leaves attendees educated, prepared and optimistic.
Who is Kenneth Wooden?
Kenneth Wooden is creator and author of the Child Lures Prevention Program. Perhaps you've seen him on Oprah, NBC Today Show, CNN, PrimeTime or numerous other television news programs. At President Bush's invitation, Mr. Wooden recently served as the sole prevention specialist on The White House Conference on Missing, Exploited and Runaway Children's "Preventing the Victimization of Children" panel.

What will Ken Wooden's presentation teach me?
There's more to protecting kids than warning them about strangers. Sexual predators have perfected techniques to lure children into abuse and worse - and they operate in the safest of neighborhoods. Thankfully, these crimes are largely preventable.

Child Lures Community Awareness and Prevention is a timely and powerfully informative seminar based on Child Safety Expert Kenneth Wooden's 20 years of investigative reporting, including his interviews with convicted child molesters, abductors and murderers.

You and your children will learn how to recognize specific lures - and how to thwart them.
