A Conversation About Consent: It seems you can't turn on the news, read a blog, or listen to a podcast without hearing about consent these days. And that's a good thing - because we need to be discussing it! Consent is the defining difference between sex and assault. Maybe you are feeling unsure about how to talk to your children about it. Maybe you're uncertain of how one should be asking for it. Are you clear on what affirmative consent means? This workshop will give you some practical ways to start addressing the concept of consent early and how to discuss it as kids transition into puberty and young adulthood.
