Young people can bear witness to challenging and/or traumatic events in current events, media, and our local communities. They often process thoughts, feelings, and reactions without our explicit help and guidance — thereby increasing their confusion and anxiety. FOSB’s PIE (Parent Information Exchange) committee hosts educator and activist Rosetta Lee for this interactive online session, where we’ll engage in these important questions:

  • Adults have a natural instinct to protect their children from harsh realities, yet want to prepare them to navigate our complex world. Is it possible to do both?
  • How can we talk about identity, difference, and justice in age appropriate ways?
  • How do you reinforce your family’s values while maintaining respect for other perspectives?
  • How do you coach children toward authentic and respectful dialogue across differences?
