Teaching Children About Healthy Boundaries and Consent
Date: Wednesday May 1
Time: 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Location: Manor Elementary School
Teaching Children Healthy Boundaries and Consent with Anya Manes: An Educator and Parent Coach
Boundaries skills are key life skills which will be needed at every age and stage of life. Interacting with others means you’ll need to feel and defend your boundaries…but how do you do this well? And how do you teach this skill set to your kids, especially if it wasn’t taught to you?
The research shows that this is best achieved by parents having open and ongoing conversations with their kids. Anya teaches parents to clarify and articulate their values, start conversations and answer questions comfortably, teach kids to feel and defend their boundaries, and guide their children to be critical thinkers about the media.
Come to this interactive talk where we’ll dive into how to teach kids to feel and defend their boundaries, and how to build consent culture.
*Childcare will be available through the YMCA. Each child is $10 and sibilings $5 Please use the sign up sheet on campus at the the YMCA. You can also drop in the night of the workshop.
Registration is required for this free event. You can register here.
