What if...?

Prevention & Training







What if...? card sets are designed to be an interactive teaching tool for adults to evaluate a child's understanding of real-life situations and help them learn how to respond. What if...? questions encourage open discussion on topics ranging from sexual abuse, physical abuse, bullying, morals, stranger danger and peer pressure to drugs & alcohol, internet safety, home safety, promises & secrets and everyday issues.

Questions are intended as conversation starters that often lead to a much deeper and meaningful dialogue. Asking a What if...? question helps to expand a child's knowledge of unsafe situations, while allowing the adult leader to assess a child's problem solving skills. The objective of this approach is to increase the probability that a child who finds themselves in an at-risk situation will communicate with a trusted adult.

Four versions of age appropriate What if...? card sets have been developed: Preschool (ages 3-5), Elementary School (ages 6-10), Middle School (ages 11-13), and Teens (ages 14+).
