BINGHAMTON (WBNG) – The Broome County Domestic Violence Prevention Council has launched a new campaign that will help parents learn how to have difficult conversations with their children, called “Read Up on Prevention”.
Kristin Beylo, co-ordinator of the Broome County Family Violence Prevention Council, said this summer reading campaign will aim to support parents by encouraging reading through donated children’s books and providing them with a list of books covering difficult topics. to manage that are important for the well-being and safety of children.
“I think parents are probably looking for places to get information, and this is a great way to start having those conversations and start what different professionals use and feel less isolated,” Kristin Beylo said.
She said each donated book will be equipped with a QR code that will lead parents to a Google Drive “Reading Schedule”, where there will be a list of books covering many difficult-to-manage topics.
“The books are divided by age, but also by subject. Some of the topics are divided into mental health, anxiety, body safety, divorce and separation, grief and loss,” said Kristin Beylo.
Beylo said that as a parent, it’s never easy to have this kind of conversation with your child, and for parents who struggle to have this conversation, it’s important to know that you’re not not alone.
