Every child and young person deserves to learn about what respectful relationships look like for them: how do we make this happen?
September 9, 2021 - September 9, 2021
Join us for the Queensland 2021 National Child Protection Week webinar, “Every child and young person deserves to learn about what respectful relationships look like for them: how do we make this happen?”
The topics of respectful relationships education and consent have been widely discussed this year. What we now know is it’s not just up to schools to be having these conversations – it’s up to the whole community.
Every child and young person in every community deserves to have access to respectful relationships education, no matter what school they go to, where they’re from or how old they are.
This webinar will have us hearing from a parent/journalist, a teacher and a worker in the space about how we can all play a part in the wider conversation with children and young people about respectful relationships.
Topics will include; how to involve parents in these conversations, how to work together, consent on the continuum, the importance of children’s voices, the line between encouragement and coercion, adult responsibility vs self protection for children, what young people are telling us and how to work through barriers in faith based settings.
