Fire Play and Fire-setting

Almost all children show an interest in fire; however, sometimes this interest leads to playing with fire or even fire-setting. This class covers fire play and fire-setting and the differences between the two behaviors, as well as the levels of concern parents should have about repeat and future fire play or fire-setting. Also provided are general steps caregivers should take if their child demonstrates fire play or fire-setting behavior.
