Free Workshop: Tough Stuff: Exploring Difficult Conversations with Kids
How do we help children process and understand the current political and cultural climate? What skills do we need when approaching difficult conversations with young people? In this interactive, 90-minute workshop, the group will share ideas and strategies for how parents, caregivers, and teachers can talk with children about some of the tough stuff that kids hear about in the news, witness in the community, and experience in their lives.
Presented by Facing History and Ourselves. For over 40 years, Facing History and Ourselves has helped teachers, students, and parents learn about prejudice, discrimination, and intolerance so they can prevent it in the future.
This event is free and open to everyone.
