This lesson will focus on recognising the positive features of safe family relationships. We will look at all family types, understanding that there may be disagreements and arguments which are common in family life, but that does not mean a family relationship is unsafe. We will see how safe family relationships overcome disagreements, difficulties and strain.
Unit Overview: Families: Being safe and reporting concerns
This lesson will focus on determining when information given by a friend/family member is trustworthy/untrustworthy, and recognising that not every child or adult has good intentions, and may present information that is one-sided or untrustworthy. It will also look at how to manage family situations where conflicting information is presented by friends/family members.
This lesson will focus on identifying key characteristics of relationships where there is potential harm occurring (physical or mental), recognising the difference between negative and unhealthy relationships and harmful relationships and how to report concerns and seek help.
This lesson will focus on what constitutes an unsafe family relationship (e.g. violence in the home, abuse etc.), dealing with the conflicting emotions in recognising our own unsafe relationships, and reporting concerns and seeking help.
