PCAIN Parent Café: Be SMART – Gun Safety
June 15, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Title: Be SMART – Gun Safety
Date: June 15, 2022
Time: Noon-1:00 pm (EST)
Description: The Be SMART framework is designed to help parents and adults normalize conversations about gun safety and take responsible actions that can prevent child gun deaths and injuries.
The Be SMART campaign was launched to raise awareness that secure gun storage–storing guns locked, unloaded, and separate from ammunition–can save children’s lives. Be SMART emphasizes that it’s an adult responsibility to keep kids from accessing guns, and that every adult can play a role in keeping kids and communities safer.
Secure — all guns in your home and vehicles
Model — responsible behavior around guns
Ask — about the presence of unsecured guns in other homes
Recognize — the role of guns in suicide
Tell – your peers to be SMART
Our Parent’s Café is more of a facilitated discussion instead of one of our regular trainings/webinars, Training Credits will not be available. The Parent Cafes are a monthly, relaxed discussion around Parenting Topics. Participants are encouraged to bring YOUR OWN ISSUES and gain insights and resources!
