This small study evaluated the effectiveness of using parents to deliver a behavioral skills training program designed to teach children gun safety skills. At three month follow up, three out of four children successfully refrained from touching a found gun, left the room in which they found it within ten seconds and told an adult. Parents reported that the total time required to learn and implement the training was under one hour and that they were highly satisfied with the content and results of the program.
