    • Sunday, November 18, 2018

    • DC Public Library - West End, 2301 L St. NW Washington, D.C. 20037
    Register



    Real talk for real kids (and parents too!). Join our discussion of temptations and trolls, boundaries and bullies, and just knowing when something isn't right, online or in person. 

    If you're transitioning or if you'd like to start a conversation with your kids, or if you aren't sure of your best parenting strategy--this workshop is for you!

    Bring your kids grades 4th - 8th or come alone to join the conversation. Together and apart, we'll discuss - 

    • Establishing boundaries at home and in foreign cultures
    • Recognizing healthy relationships
    • Where to get good information
    • How family agreements lead to safer online use
    • How to respond with resilience when things go wrong

    Join FSYF and Laurie Tasharski from the International Center for Missing and Exploited Children for this informative and fun workshop.  

    Registration is required in advance of the program.
