How going to the beach can help us understand principles of Child Safe culture

Beach safety is the perfect analogy for understanding Child Safe Organisations.  For children, relationships with adults are much like the ocean.  Mostly, the relationships are positive and fun, but some adults use their strength and power to hurt.  Child Safe Organisations are about using prevention strategies to keep children as safe as possible when interacting with adults, while ensuring they can still enjoy quality, meaningful relationships.
