Teaching Consent to Young Children
In an age of frequent assault allegations and abuse statistics, how do we raise children to understand, set, and respect personal boundaries? How can we take preemptive steps to protect children from abuse? Families and caregivers send daily messages about consent without realizing it, and we can help them be intentional with words and actions. We will discuss consent and developmentally appropriate practice, using breakout group discussion and role-play.
