Teaching Kids About Boundaries and Consent



Our society does not teach Boundaries skills well, and yet, it’s a key life skills which will be needed at every age and stage of life.  Interacting with others, sexually or not, 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?  Come to this skill-building workshop where we’ll be diving into how to teach kids to feel and defend their boundaries, and how to build consent culture.
