Talking to Children about Firearms

Talking to children about firearms is a necessity in today’s world. You might have some in your home or they might visit a home with firearms. Safety is of the utmost importance when addressing the subject of firearms with children. There are special considerations for keeping them safe. When and how do I teach children about guns? How can I keep kids safe around firearms? What is appropriate for my child’s age? At what age do I start talking to my children about firearms? Can they safely shoot at a shooting range? Will my children really understand about firearms? Will they be frightened when they learn about guns? These questions are all valid and are addressed in our new course, How to Talk to your Children about Firearms.

Our lead instructor at Southern Charm Firearms Academy, Crystal Duke, has a certification in Children’s Firearms & Safety Fundamentals. This class is for parents, grandparents, gun owners and educators. Come learn the 25 things we can teach kids about guns, basic teaching methods, strategies & techniques for teaching children of all ages, safety, firearms familiarization, age appropriate workbook and activities, range skills and drills, and much more in this class!

Whenever children are involved, it’s vital that we consider three important facets of firearms and safety training: Education, Prevention and Action. To cover these three topics, this safety seminar is designed to help adults know more about the why, when and how to address the topics of firearms and safety with kids of all ages. It will also establish foundations for creating positive, welcoming and fun learning experiences for youth. Including preventing accidents and promoting the safe, responsible and ethical use of firearms. This class is 4 hours in the classroom followed by 1 hour of range time to learn the drills to use with children.
