Sarit Oren, criminologist and Lehrman mom, presented a riveted Lehrman Parent Association audience with statistics, warning signs/signals and most importantly, ways in which parents can educate children of all ages on how to handle “Stranger – Dangers and Bullying” at their monthly meeting. Sarit, a native of Canada, worked extensively in correctional facilities and half-way houses in a variety of positions including probation officer. She was an interview agent in a major Canadian government study on inmates and their experiences in and out of correctional facilities. Prevention became her central focus. “If we can get to the next generation before the media, the peer pressure, the aggressors, or the ‘family demons’…(we can) intercept early to make…real changes in how society…evolve(s). Sarit’s was truly an interactive presentation which no-one wanted to see come to an end.
