“Pattie's presentation was filled with great tips in a perfect, kid-friendly way. She helped the students understand the concepts of personal safety in a fun and entertaining manner. The kids were chanting the tips they learned around school for days! I highly recommend this presentation for all schools and grade levels.”

“Pattie’s seminar was terrific, full of information I had never begun to think of, and invaluable to me as a mother of two. Her delivery of such a sensitive topic is what makes the seminar so special.”
Julie Daniel, Los Angeles, CA

“Pattie's presentation was amazing. I thought we might be in for an evening full of “heavy, depressing discussion”. Instead, it was enlightening and actually fun. Pattie was able to bring humor into the workshop by discussing common parenting issues that we all deal with. By the end everyone was talking about how easy she made us feel. Everyone left with tons of excellent information — and ways we could teach our kids about staying safe.”
Linda Perry, Owner, PeachheadFamilies.com

“Ms. Fitzgerald's seminar was one of the most informative and engaging sessions I have seen for Kindergarten age children. All the safety points were addressed in a fun and educational manner that never scared the kids. The children left the seminar with ideas and language that they could easily express to their parents. The seminar addressed major safety concerns and gave the kids an easy way out of some possibly threatening situations. ”
Kurt Schwengel, Kindergarten Teacher, Santa Monica, CA

“Pattie, thank you so much for introducing “Safely Ever After” to our Brownie Troop #1224. Your warm and heart-felt way of informing young children on a sensitive subject is amazing! We got an overwhelmingly positive response from all the parents and girls the following day! This program should be made available to all Girls Scout USA organizations!”
Kelly G., Brownie Troop 1224, Los Angeles

“This seminar should be required for every parent. It was so informative and eye opening. Pattie’s knowledge of the subject is truly impressive. I feel like I left this course with some very specific criteria and terminology, which was smart and easy to begin to share with my two little girls.”
Holly Rosen, Venice, CA

“To say we had an amazing time today at “Kidz-Power!” would be an understatement. My kids really got it! They were singing the songs and talking about their new safety rules all through dinner. A really inspirational program. Thanks, Pattie!”
Beth S., Malibu, CA

“Thank you, Ms. Fitzgerald, for your wonderful presentation. Your way with people is most engaging, offering a non-threatening, affirmative method for dealing with such a timely subject. Speaking with many of our parishioners, I know you ‘hit home’ with all of them.”

“Pattie’s seminars are a MUST for every parent. She is passionate about keeping our kids safe. She communicates the information extremely well and heightens our awareness to the less obvious “red flags” that we might otherwise overlook. AND she does this all in her wonderfully humorous, but still serious style. Amazing. No parent should be without this knowledge for their children.”
