PEQUOT LAKES—Jacob Wetterling Resource Center has teamed up with Pequot Lakes Early Childhood to host a free class April 24 for parents on "Teachable Safety Skills."

The class will address questions such as how parents can talk to their children about personal safety without scaring them and on personal and online safety, a news release stated. The workshop will also provide caregivers with practical tools they can use in talking about personal safety concerns with youth of all ages in a positive and empowering way.
