Here's How Gorp Can Help:
His books will open the dialogue for you on some sensitive, often life-saving areas. The Gorp materials empower children by giving them the tools they need to handle many difficult and confusing situations. Through engaging, but sensitive stories, Gorp teaches children that they have the power to take better care of themselves ... no matter what the circumstances.
For parents, teachers, counselors, and caregivers, these special books help you talk with your children about delicate issues in a caring, loving, and helpful way.
Issues We Address:
Sexual Abuse: What can we possibly say to children so they understand inappropriate touching? How do we teach what, unfortunately, they need to know without frightening them? Gorp’s Secret will help you do that, lovingly, yet pointedly.
Bullying: Gorp’s Dream shows children, in a age appropriate and child-friendly way, how kindness towards everyone is what makes a better world and a sweeter life for them, too. The book illustrates this concept with lessons in diversity, responsibility, and even fire safety, and it’s fun!
Gun Safety: No, not a lesson in how to handle a weapon, the Gorp's Gift is a loving treatise in what to do, and mostly, what not to do, if the child comes into contact with one of the more than 200 million guns that exist in the United States.
Separate Teacher’s/Counselor's Guides for each book make it easier to not only open the dialogue on these difficult subjects, but to drive home each message with activities, projects, questions, games, etc.
We applaud your efforts and appreciate you more than we can express! “No one of us is as strong as all of us!” We don’t know who said it first, but we like it!
