Robert Norton instructs the following:
  • Self-Protection for Teen Girls
  • Teen girls are unfortunately among the highest risk of being physically assaulted. With pressures to look or act in a certain way and the constant threat from distractions such as smart phones, etc, it makes a parents job to keep their teens safe even harder. Violence shouldn't happen, but the reality of life is that it does.
    It begins with PREVENTION. Be PREPARED by learning the skills to protect yourself. Norton Arts provides education in PRACTICAL and REALISTIC self-protection. Provide your teenager with the life skills to stay safe.
