ISACS Parent Series: Talking to Youth About Heated Topics

Pre-Registration Zoom Link



Young people bear witness to challenging or traumatic events in current events, media, and our local communities. They are often trying to process thoughts, feelings, and reactions without our explicit help and guidance—thereby increasing their confusion and anxiety. We adults have a natural instinct to protect our children from harsh realities while also preparing them to navigate this complex world—is it possible to do both? What are ways to talk about identity, differences, and justice in age-appropriate ways? How do you reinforce your family's values without instilling disrespect for other perspectives? How do you coach them toward authentic and respectful dialogue across differences? Engage in these questions and more. There will be time for Q&A. This webinar will focus on grades K-8, but will be applicable to all.
