PARENT WORKSHOP: Addressing the issue of BODY SAFETY & CONSENT with our young children

Wed August 31 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Presented by MICHELLE DERRIG Child Protection Advocate and Author of the Best Selling Picture Book ‘ONLY FOR ME’.

In this 75 minute face-to-face workshop Michelle unpacks the tricky topic of body safety, providing parents and carers with insight and understanding about how best to empower and protect their young children against sexual assault.

The workshop covers the WHAT, WHEN, WHY & HOW of protecting your children and explains how parents and carers can actually help disarm predators of the tools and tricks they commonly use during the grooming process.

The workshop also includes an Author Reading of Only For Me and concludes with the opportunity to ask questions and to receive free access to the SAFE Kids Series (Michelle’s digital resource for parents valued at $14.95).
