What is “Someone To Talk To?” you ask. Well, it is a puppet presentation for first graders that gently talks about four different kinds of abuse. Kids — even first graders — know many more things about their world than they did even 10 years ago. On the other hand, there may be experiences to which they are exposed that are wrong or generate fear that to them seem normal since they don’t know any differently or are too afraid to tell someone. The goal is to let the kids know that they need to talk to an adult who would be able to help. The program is presented in Sarasota County schools on Tuesdays starting in January. No memorization of the script is required as the puppet speaking is behind the curtain.
