THE PROTECTION COLLECTION
This Collection teaches our children what to watch out for in their world
As a parent, we want nothing more than to keep our children safe-keep them out of harms way and to be there for them at all times... However, being there every minute of every day just isn't possible. But what if we can teach our children now about some of those dangerous things in their world?
Such as those bottles under the sink, those white rectangles in our walls that have cords attached to them, or maybe that stray dog walking through the neighborhood...This Collection will cover dangers in the home, outside of the home, dangers while traveling, why water and fire can be dangerous, and more! This Collection, like all of Elle Grey's stories, allows us to teach our children in a fun and often funny way so that our children want to listen, all the while, making sure that the lesson of each story is revealed and thoroughly enjoyed!
The Protection Collection is set for release after The Emotions Collection.
THE PROTECTION COLLECTION
"If you ever see a dog just walking around and he looks hungry, tired and is making a sad sound...Don't get close, just tell a grown-up; this way they can safely see if they can help that pup!" -Elle Grey from the story, PROTECTION FROM ANIMALS
This story teaches our kids about some of the uncommon animals that can be dangerous and some of the more common ones too! Like that stray dog that just seems to always be wandering around the neighborhood or that parrot at their friends house or maybe that raccoon that looks so cute!!
"Fire is something from which we should always keep our distance. Even when roasting marshmallows, you should ask for assistance!" -Elle Grey from the story, PROTECTION FROM FIRE
This story manages to explains the power of fire without leaving our children afraid to enjoy the warmth of a fire while camping. It simply teaches to respect the power of fire, to never tempt it and NEVER get too close!
"Oh, the voyage of a germ and how it loves to multiply. But did you know, many germs find it quite fun to land right in your eye?!" -Elle Grey from the story, PROTECTION FROM GERMS
Oh, this is a funny story which manages to teach our kids about germs while keeping them laughing...laughter always helps to plant the seed!
"Did you know the ocean has at least one foot? It's true, do you know how I know...? Because it has this thing called an, 'undertow'!" -Elle Grey from the story, PROTECTION FROM WATER
Water is such a lovely part of our world but it's so important for our kids to not underestimate its strength! Whether it's bath time, swim time or really, anytime...Water is something we must always respect!
"If someone's ever not very nice to you and leaves you feeling blue...You tell a teacher and then always tell me, there's so much we can do!" -Elle Grey from the story, PROTECTION WHILE AT SCHOOL
Unfortunately, there are so many things these days to be cautious of while at school. This story touches on so many of them such as bullies, strangers, violence, emotional taunts, peer pressure and their overall well- being. A great story for any child, no matter the school.
"Not too fast up and down those stairs...Or, it may be you needing repairs! -Elle Grey from the story, PROTECTION WHILE INSIDE
That place we call home... So happy, comforting and where our family can be found. However, there are white rectangles in the walls filled with electricity, bottles under the sink and in the bathroom filled with poison, not to mention the heavy furniture. This story just reminds our children, in the most gentle of ways, to be mindful of these dangers so that home can always be a place of comfort!
"Always remember, moving can be fun despite all the work. It’s a new adventure-a new chapter in your book!" -Elle Grey from the story, PROTECTION WHILE MOVING
Moving is usually very stressful for adults and it's easy for that stress to spill over to our kids. And sometimes, we forget they have their own feelings about the move. This story reminds them how exciting moving can be; all the new experiences, the new food and a new room! It also teaches them of some safety tips along the journey, like this one: "Before you get there, try to learn your new address and memorize it in your head. So if you get lost once there, you can ask for help back to where you live!"
"Go explore, play in the mud and let your hair fly in the breeze! Just stay clear of that hive filled with bees!" -Elle Grey from the story, PROTECTION WHILE OUTSIDE
Exploring is so much fun and frankly, its the full-time job of a kid! Giving our kids independence to explore their world is so important, especially to help build self-confidence. This story makes sure that along with their independence, comes knowledge!
"Don't chase that ball going into the street...Your ball will be alright, but you my dear, must plant your feet!" -Elle Grey from the story, PROTECTION WHILE PLAYING
Play is the best learning tool for our kids! That play time can be independent play or with friends, but sometimes, parents just aren't allowed! This story allows us to plant the seeds early about what to be wary of while playing...How about that ball rolling off the driveway or that lake nearby...?
"Don’t forget your sunblock and wear comfy shoes and don’t play with jellyfish-That’s a game you’ll always lose!" -Elle Grey from the story, PROTECTION WHILE TRAVELING
Traveling can be SO MUCH FUN! But before you go, let's talk about how we can keep the entire trip safe, but in a really fun and funny way! This story touches on various locations to be traveling, as well as, various ways to travel. Each place and each mode of transportation comes with its own set of protection points to talk about!
