Consent for Kids
Thu, Mar 25, 2021 from 12pm - 2:30pm (Pacific)
Kids need consent. They need to know when it’s okay to say no and how to ask for a yes. As the world continues to change and consent becomes even more prominent, adults need to know how to talk to kids about consent and consent practices. We also need to be able to explain and model consent in an age appropriate way. Join us for a workshop on why kids need consent, what talking to them about consent is like, and how to adjust your approach for different age groups. Together we can work to reduce the harm our kids experience, teach them how to avoid harming others, and build a larger and more robust consent culture.
2 Hours with a ½ hour Q&A at the end. Handouts and Zoom link will be emailed on the day of the class. If you purchased tickets for a group, please forward those emails to everyone in your group.
- This class is being offered twice, once during the week and once on the weekend to accommodate different schedules. The content will be the same both times, though the discussion and questions are likely to vary.
- This is an online discussion. You must register before the day of the session. Zoom link and instructions will be emailed an hour or so before the workshop begins.
