Episode 056: Thoughts from Mom-nonymous
Episode 056: Damsel in Defense with special guest Jennifer Lester aka Stun Gun Jen
Jennifer Lester gave us great information to help empower ourselves and become more aware of our surroundings wherever we are. Jennifer talked of us elderly women who grocery shop by ourselves and what a target we are. I can relate to that. She’s right, and I have always paid attention when doing so and never carry a purse. That’s why we have pockets. We don’t want to look vulnerable. Awareness is key wherever we are, and Jennifer elaborated about this in washrooms, hotels, rest stops shopping and even parking lots. Jennifer also noted the importance of keeping burglar alarms on even when we are at home.
Aside from all that, Jennifer also teaches classes on our behaviors, the risk factors, and how to empower oneself on the homefront and in public. Her classes are taught by a female Black Belt on basice assault self-defense to more intense training that involves practice with another person. Jennifer is proactive about demonstrating and selling non-lethal weapons. She even offers “Wine and Weapons Party” at your home. It would be the way to obtain a non-lethal self-defense weapon. You can also check out her website to do make a purchas (or schedule an event).
Jennifer did share about her own divorce and her online dating experience. She shared many do’s and don’ts — Great information on dating. The “Me Too” subject surfaced also, followed by thoughts on drugs, rape, and alcohol. So much to think about including how the police handle reports of rape and assault. Educate your children. We all need to value ourselves, as well as, everyone around us.
