Helping Hand

Knowing who to turn to when help is needed will make the process easier. If telling an adult will help someone — right away or in the long run — then it’s the right thing to do!

  • Paper and Crayons


  • Let’s think of five grown-ups who you can go to for help with big problems and make a “Helping Hand” with their names.
  • Remember: your grown-ups love you and can help you and other kids solve problems if you need help.  Your trusted adults can be teachers, family members — like parents, aunts/uncles, grandparents —  or  close friends of your family.
  • Tell me who your five helpers are. We can work together to draw a hand and write the names of your five helpers on each finger. We created a helping hand!
  • Now, if you see something that’s wrong, if you ever feel unsafe, or if there’s a big problem that you can’t solve on your own, you know who you can ask for help.


Upstanding - to stand up for what’s right
Tattle - to tell secrets without trying to be helpful
