Many children and families are experiencing isolation and stress related to the COVID-19 pandemic. To keep children safe from sexual abuse during this time, it’s important for adults to talk with each other, and with their children, about personal boundaries and consent.

Participants will:

  • Understand the importance of boundaries and consent, particularly as related to isolation due to COVID-19.
  • Learn strategies to encourage parents and caregivers to talk with their children and other adults about boundaries and consent in various situations.
