Child Abuse Prevention: Anti-Child Abuse Colouring Book For Kids

Trying to redeem themselves? The New York Archdiocese of the Roman Catholic church has come up with a colouring book for children, which should teach them to stay safe and away from potential predators ( and to not be alone with a priest?)

071201_ps42_vl “Being Friends, Being Safe, Being Catholic” is what you’d expect from a Christian handout: lessons in loving thy neighbor and knowing we’re all special in God’s eyes, plus a fun word search with names of people whom kids can trust (parents, counselors, teachers). Many of the book’s cartoon-sketch drawings, which were created by a church volunteer, are light in tone and narrated by an angel looming overhead. But on one page, the angel warns of an online predator—with chest hair exposed—who attempts to chat with a child; on another (shown above), the angel implies that children should make sure they’re never alone in a room with a priest.
