    A Sign Of The Times - ‘Moggy’s Coming’

    Sadly a sign of the times ... I wonder will our youngest grandchildren be telling us about this soon?

    ‘Moggy’s Coming’ Book Is Being Used In Schools To Teach Young Children About Terror Attacks

    Children are being taught how to prepare for and react to terror attacks through a storybook read in schools.

    The resource has been created by citizenAID charity, an initiative sounded by four UK civilian and military clinicians who are working to “improve public resilience”.

    Events such as the Manchester bombing and the Barcelona attack have shown that children, as well as adults, can be caught up terror attacks.

    “Some knowledge and skills are therefore appropriate for children to stay safe and to help others, where realistic,” Tim Hodgetts, who works at citizenAID told HuffPost UK.

    “The message for young children is a generic one - how to react if someone is trying to hurt you. This is as relevant to the more frequent knife crime incidents, as it is to infrequent terrorist events.” 

    CitizenAID’s aim is to empower the next generation with the skills and knowledge that they need to stay safe.

    As part of this, they have developed ‘Moggy’s Coming’, an ebook written for younger children, which will help teachers and parents to talk about the principles of “Run, Hide, Tell, Treat”.

    “Moggy’s Coming’ teaches children how to react in any situation where a child may perceive someone is trying to hurt them,” said Hodgetts.
    “It emphasises the national police safety message in these circumstances of ‘Run Hide Tell’ and introduces the concept of ‘when safe to do so treat those who are hurt’.

    “For young children it is about understanding treatment will be given by adults until help arrives.” 

    The ‘Moggy’s Coming’ story is based at Mulberry School for mice. It features a class who are taught by their teacher what they should do if a cat were ever to break into their school.
    The children take part in a practise drill, based around the “Run, Hide, Tell, Treat” message: they run into their classroom and hide.
