PROGRAM FEATURES


Widespread use of smartphones, internet, and social media exposes today’s students to sensitive issues and topics at far younger ages than in the past. Study after study suggests that young people are not learning the social and relational skills needed to form healthy and wholesome personal relationships. RCL Benziger’s Family Life program provides the resources needed in Catholic schools and parishes to help students develop such skills. Resources for use in the home help family members improve communication skills, share faith, and grow in their practice of Catholic family living.

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.

SCHOOL CURRICULUM
Incorporating the Family Life program into your school curriculum reinforces the Catholic virtues and values that your students attain with their education. Most Catholic schools offer the Family Life series in ten teaching blocks, corresponding with the ten lessons in each grade level.
