The Boulder JCC is partnering with local parent educator Feather Berkower to bring this important virtual Parenting Safe Children workshop to the JCC and our community. It is a two-part workshop and participants must attend both sessions on April 3rd and 10th that will run from 2 – 4:30 pm. We encourage all parents, relatives, educators, therapists, and anyone who works with children to take part.
Parenting Safe Children offers valuable information, ideas, and tools to help you prevent child sexual abuse in your home and community. The workshop will cover three prevention areas and empower you to discuss body safety with children and caregivers in a positive and effective manner.
Workshop objectives include:
Learning body-safety rules, so you can teach your children about personal body safety, in an age-appropriate, positive, and non-threatening manner.
Developing screening techniques, so you can decide more confidently which caregivers you want to entrust with your children.
It’s never too early to start talking with children about keeping their bodies safe. By starting early, you can create an environment that fosters safety and open communication.
Topics covered include:
Creating a communication-rich environment for children
Empowering children to set and maintain boundaries
Tips for screening childcare providers
Teaching manners while also teaching kids to say, “NO” if they are un-safe
