Conversations with Children About Consent  

Discussing the aspects of boundaries and consent with young children can seem so incredibly daunting and uncomfortable that we sometimes avoid the conversation altogether. Learn how to talk with children about their own voice and choices in a way that acknowledges the various facets of consent. Learn some basics of consent, the ways we inadvertently teach children that consent is not important and practice strategies to bring back to your classroom (or home). How children learn about consent as a child will inform how they interact with other adults and children throughout their lifetime. (Available for educators or family groups!)
