Daisy Tells A Secret DVD review

Lora at Daisy Tells a Secret graciously sent me a copy of Daisy Tells a Secret DVD to review.  I received no compensation for this review.  I only received one copy of the DVD to review and write an objective review.

Daisy Tells A Secret
On The Back
Daisy’s Story
While Daisy is alone with her uncle, he touches her private area and tells her to keep it a secret.
Children learn the difference between good and bad secrets, how to identify safe grownups and if abuse happens, it’s never their fault.
This DVD includes interviews with educators and prevention specialists intended for parents.  Topics include: How to talk to your child about his/her body. Keeping a child safe. When you suspect abuse. What to do after disclosure.
It is recommended that parents review these materials before viewing the animation with their children.  Also included on the DVD: Photos to assist in discussion, instruction card for review, coloring pages for children.
Before showing the animation to my girls, I watched the parent’s video, especially the section “Using the Daisy Video”.  This section guides parents on how to start a discussion and what to talk about with your children.  The instructions help you remember what key points to discuss when talking with your children.  I was amazed that such a touchy subject had a DVD that was so easy for parents to use.  It will guide you step by step through the process of discussing abuse with your children.  How to broach the subject with your children and what key points to discuss.
I was a little apprehensive about watching this video with my girls.  First of all, I didn’t want to expose them to bad things, but then I realized if I didn’t talk to them about this issue someone else could.  I was very relieved at how thorough the DVD was.  The movie opened the way for me to discuss these sensitive areas with my girls.  It allowed them to ask questions in a non-threatening way and for us to be open and honest. After watching the movie with my girls I was glad that I showed it to them and so thankful that this movie was created to help parents like me.
Daisy Tells a Secret won a Parent’s Choice “Recommended Seal” Award.  The production of these DVDs are a collaboration between HAVEN of Oakland County and One of Us Films, made possible by generous financial support from the Verizon Foundation.
Please drop by the Daisy Tells a Secret website and let them know Melissa of Melissa’s Musings sent you.
Until Next time,
