SAFE ENVIRONMENT FOR THE PROTECTION OF CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE

 

A MESSAGE FROM BISHOP SHELTON FABRE


Providing a Safe Environment and educating children, youth and adults about preventing child abuse are prime concerns of these Safe Environment Guidelines.  Children are gifts from God, and as such we must treat them with respect and assist them in developing to the full potential that God sees in them. Along with their parents, who are the primary educators of their children in the ways of faith, the diocese of Houma-Thibodaux is committed to providing a healthy, loving and safe environment where children can be formed into the future adults of our Church and society.  Our children deserve this, and to the very best of our ability we are dedicated to providing this to them.

 
Most Reverend Shelton J. Fabre

Hints for Having a Safe and Enjoyable Holiday

 

Holidays are always such an exciting time for kids and adults alike.  It’s fascinating to the little ones you see, they don’t have all this fun, sparkly stuff at home to play with.  We parents get a false sense of security when we take our kids to family get-togethers.  We’re relieved to be in the presence of grandparents, aunts, uncles and older cousins who can give us a break from our parenting duties for a while.

Among all the chaos there are steps you can take to be sure that you and your loved ones all have a relaxing, accident free, holiday:

  1. If you’re traveling to a relative’s home, check the area your children will be playing in to be sure there is nothing dangerous or valuable that they’ll get into.
  2. Close doors to any unused rooms or block off areas that you don’t want your children playing in.
  3. If your child still sleeps in a crib, bring a portable one along with you.
  4. Bring toys from home so little ones won’t be tempted to play with Aunt Margie’s antique doll collection.
  5. Always be sure that you “pass the baton” of supervision when you need to take care of something or help with cooking.  Don’t assume that other adults in the room are supervising (especially if the television is on).
  6. If the guests are coming to your home, try to plan ahead for the ages of children who are coming.  Remove any breakable objects from the room they’ll be playing in (this assumes that your children are older and you actually have breakable objects on display in your home!).

 

 

Merry Christmas
