Family Life—the most popular Catholic family life program in the United States—was written in accordance with the guidelines set forth in the USCCB document Catechetical Formation in Chaste Living: Guidelines for Curriculum Design and Publication. It is approved for child safety education in dioceses across the United States. RCL Benziger’s Family Life is based upon nationally recognized principles for a successful child safety program. It is unique in its approach of integrating child safety content within the broader framework of moral catechesis, virtues education, and Catholic family living. In every lesson of every grade level, children develop the knowledge, self-confidence, and assertiveness skills they need in order to RECOGNIZE, RESPOND, and REPORT dangerous situations. 

The Family Life eAssessments assist the Catholic school in meeting the Mission and Catholic Identity and the Academic Excellence standards from the National Standards and Benchmarks for Effective Catholic Elementary and Secondary Schools, published by the NCEA.
