This workshop was developed and is delivered in partnership with an RSW (Registered Social Worker) who has over 10 years of experience in child protection and adoptions work and is Metis. Speaking to our children about the current civil rights movements and the historical and current atrocities in our communities is overwhelming. The difficult reality of humanity is complicated for adults to understand, let alone for our tiny humans. This workshop teaches parents and educators alike how to talk to children in a way that is developmentally appropriate and why we need to talk to children about the core concepts behind systemic discrimination and significant social movements. Specific topics include Black Lives Matter and residential school, and colonialism.
