Joe took the Parenting Safe Chldren workshop and immediately began screening caregivers and teaching his two daughters body-safety rules. Check out his video message to other dads and spread the word about the practical and easy things fathers can do to keep their kids safe.
We recently had the opportunity to take the best parenting class that we have ever come across. The subject matter is tough, but very important—how to protect our children from sexual abuse. Unlike many parenting classes, this class is not at all preachy or impractical. It provides tangible ways that we can help our children become less vulnerable. We recommend it not only to parents of any child, high school age or younger (including infants), but also to grandparents, friends, and relatives—in short, anyone who spends time with your children or who your children may trust.”

"THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! It was so great to be a part of something so wonderful. Thank you for helping us be proactive about teaching our children. You're dedicated, knowledgeable and easy to be with. You made a very difficult subject easier to grasp and get a hold of without making it scary. You are a wonderful teacher, a powerful speaker and to say it frankly…you really know your stuff! Everyone was very impressed and you left them thinking which is fabulous."
- Lisa, Parent, Colorado
“I thought I'd be frightened by this workshop, but I was actually enlightened. This workshop will change the way you think about children’s safety. Moreover, I'm the mother of a 15-year old, and don't think for a minute this is a class for parents of young children only. The information is as relevant for the parent of a 5-year old as it is for a 15-year old.”
- Gayle, Parent, Florida
“I work with hundreds of children each month. I take parenting classes all the time. (I have a 6 & 11 year old). I thought I knew a lot about communication. What I learned in Feather's Parenting Safe Children workshop is invaluable. I use the tools at work and at home. Do your children a favor and sign up today.”
- Iris, Educational Director, Colorado
“Parenting Safe Children gave me tools I needed as a parent to empower my children. Feather’s tips were precise, practical and age-appropriate. I highly recommend her seminar.”
- Haleh, Parent, New York
“I highly recommend Feather's ‘Parenting Safe Children!’ I went into the workshop thinking I already knew how to keep my kids safe, but then I realized that not only was I neglecting to do certain things to keep my kids safe, but I was even doing things that were unknowingly increasing the odds of something happening to them! I encourage all fathers to attend the workshop so they are prepared to fulfill their role as protector of their children."
- Joe, Dad, Colorado
“Thanks again for the wonderful and informative presentation. My husband and I have started working some of your ideas into our family life. Tonight we started played the “favorites” game at dinner. I actually got some info about my daughter’s school day, which was a nice change.”
- Amanda, Parent, Colorado
"Feather Berkower is an amazing presenter who sincerely informs and explores the sensitive subject of sexual abuse of children. She shares valuable information and different approaches for parents and adults who work with children. I believe this will significantly lower the incidents of abuse. Toward that end, I intend to have Feather educate our summer camp staff."
- Lynn, Camp Director, Colorado
“This is the single most powerful workshop I have ever attended. I was able to implement several techniques the same evening to improve my kid’s safety! My 4-year old now knows what private parts are, that he is the “boss of his body,” and can say no to adults if they try and violate his body-safety. By implementing a “no secrets” rule in our house, playing games like “favorites and un-favorites,” and “what-if” games I now as a parent have a means to detect and prevent grooming by pedophiles. Feather also taught me how to open a safe and secure dialogue with my son so he feels safe telling me anything. My family has been forever impacted by this minimal investment in time; it is a must for every parent.”
- Mike, Father, Colorado
“I have always been particularly paranoid about my children's vulnerability regarding sexual predators. In my mind, I could never let my guard down; no one was above suspicion. After attending Feather's Parenting Safe Children workshop, I no longer feel paranoid. Now I understand safety isn't about building a mommy-guarded fortress around my kids. I have peace-of-mind regarding my children's innocence and security; I have knowledge and I have skills to help keep our family safe.”
- A very thankful Mom, Colorado
“Parenting Safe Children is absolutely the best parenting workshop I have ever taken. Feather's passion about protecting children comes across in every aspect of the presentation—statistics, helpful tools and practical advice. I have recommended this workshop to every parent and professional I know.”
- Taylor, LCSW & Parent, Colorado
"Your Parenting Safe Children class was excellent! For all my foster training your 2 1/2 hour class was the most informative and practical yet. I love the focus on the positive. It is such a refreshing approach and it helps me feel that it is a manageable issue. Before it seemed like such a depressing subject that I just couldn't get my arms (or mind!) around."
- Foster Parent, Colorado
“This is a ‘must do’ workshop for parents of any age children. The information provided is accurate, concise and presented in a way that makes the information immediately useable. I have encouraged all of my clients who have children to attend this beneficial workshop.”
- Carol, Psychologist, Colorado

“The Parenting Safe Children Professional In-Service is one of the most valuable that I engage in each year with my staff. Each person leaves with tools to keep children safe. As a parent & administrator, I recommend this training. Thank you Feather for this invaluable information!"
- Nancy James, Executive Director, Montessori of Colorado
“The Parenting Safe Children in-service provided the staff an opportunity to learn and incorporate valuable principles and strategies aimed at keeping children safe within our early childhood learning environment. The information Feather delivered was enlightening and sparked a great deal of productive discussion amongst staff members and parents. Shortly after the workshop, a team of staff and parents collaborated to develop a center-wide safe children policy that is now the standard at our center.” - Rebecca Tankersley, Director, Fisher Early Learning Center, Denver, CO
"Our community was fortunate to host a Parenting Safe Children workshop for professionals. The information Feather shares is invaluable to those who work with kids. Several people commented on how this was one of the best workshops they had attended and well worth their time"
