Irene crafts a fantastic book here. Using lots of real world examples drawn from her long career teaching children and their caregivers (parents, guardians, grandparents, nursery staff, teachers, etc) how to be safe, she seamlessly teaches us how to be safer parents. Not only does the book teach what we might consider 'classical safety skills', it teaches skills for training our children to have better interpersonal boundary setting skills to make them more resilient and less likely to be the victim of bullying or abuse.
The book does use material from some of Irene's earlier books (1,2,3 The Toddler Years, The Kidpower Book for caring adults) but there is a lot of new material here too, so it works well as a 'buffer' between those books or equally as well as a standalone. The method and message remain constant.
Thanks Irene!

A wonderful guide for all new parents, and caregivers too. You are in great hands with Irene van der Zande! 21 Nov. 2013
By Amy Tiemann - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Irene van der Zande is the author of the classic parenting guide, 1,2,3...The Toddler Years: A Practical Guide for Parents and Caregivers which for over 25 years has helped new parents navigate the waters through the all-important first few years of life. Now van der Zande combines her toddler-parenting expertise with her work as the Founder and Executive Director of Kidpower, a leading international organization teaching personal safety to people of all ages, with the creation of the new book "Earliest Teachable Moment: Personal Safety for Babies, Toddlers and Preschoolers." What does personal safety look like for very young children? "Earliest Teachable Moment" gives parents and caregivers information and tools to create emotional safety, boundaries, and positive relationships. Add to that important parent-centered information including "How to choose safe people to care for your children." Van der Zande coaches parents on how to teach basic skills to children including "Checking first to be safe with objects, animals, strangers, and other potential problems." "Earliest Teachable Moment" is practical, compassionate, and backed by years of real-world-tested expertise. This book is a must-have for any parenting library--for yourself, a loved one, or a baby shower gift.
