CREATE A CULTURE THAT RESPONDS TO INJUSTICE.
"Teaching my two young daughters about respect, consent, and bodily autonomy is extremely important to me and my family. This course makes it so easy to do so. The design is beautiful, it is easy to follow, simple to adapt for different ages, and I really love how it gives me written step-by-step dialogues I can do whenever. With the help of this course, I feel I am on the right track to raising compassionate girls who respect both themselves and others, but feel parents of sons would benefit so much from this too!'
Talking to your kids about modern slavery and preventing sexual exploitation are two topics that are often linked together and both can feel overwhelming. In fact, many caregivers find these topics so daunting that they avoid them all together!
If you've ever found yourself asking these questions, this course is probably a good fit for your family:
How do you talk with a two-year-old vs. an eleven-year old about human value?
My kids don't even know about sex yet! Why this relevant?
Shouldn't we protect their innocence?
My kids aren't at risk for exploitation--are they?
How do I build on my last conversation so you don't overwhelm your kids (or myself!)?
What resources are already out there to teach my kids?
Are there actually action steps my kids can do even though they are just so young?
What would I even cover if I was going to talk with them about modern slavery and sexual exploitation?
I barely know about these issues myself! Why should my kids?
Conversations With Your Kids About Modern Slavery was designed to help you build upon these concerns and move into meaningful dialogue with your kids, to help them where they are at to value human life, protect them from danger, and give them ways to act compassionately.
Elisa Johnston, founder of Average Advocate, empowers everyday people to change the world by helping them move past feeling overwhelmed, discover their purpose, and know where to start through coaching, speaking, and writing. She has also started or been part of starting over a dozen orgs/teams/movements that make a difference in the world (two of which are dedicated to ending modern slavery).
She spends most of her time attempting to live intentionally in her faith, relationships, home (raising her 3, 8, and 9 year-old kids), and enjoying her current neck-of-the-wood (beach!), San Diego.
YOU CAN EMPOWER AND PROTECT YOUR CHILDREN.
START YOUNG. RAISE A WORLD CHANGER.
Elisa started noticing a lot of parents seemed to want to raise their kids to be compassionate, valuing humanity, like she was trying to raise her kids to do. They also wanted their kids to feel empowered to do something about big social problems, like modern slavery. As even in the United States our children aren't immune from sex trafficking (a type of modern slavery), parents also wanted to know steps they could take to protect their kids from any type of sexual exploitation.
To answer these questions, Elisa began chronicling what she'd been doing with her own kids. She began pulling from her expertise on modern slavery and sifting through the sexual exploitation and sex trafficking prevention trainings she's encountered.
Elisa wanted parents to answer these questions:
How do I foster compassion so my children care and are empowered to do something about modern slavery?
How do I help protect them and prevent them from being sexually exploited?
WHAT’S YOUR INVESTMENT?
How much time are you wasting, unsure of how to have these conversations? What if you could prevent what might happen in one, two, seven years from now, if you only started now? How many connecting conversations with your kids are being missed? What if they stop trusting you because you weren't honest with them early--when they were ready--just because you weren't ready?
A lack of intention might cost your children more than you are willing to let them pay.
Or, how much could they change the world--young as they are--if you only let them try? What if they are a new generation--one that actually loves and respects other people in action and not just in accolades?
Elisa has already put in the time and investment to help guide you, meticulously pulling this course content together in a step-by-step process so you can have confidence as you begin these conversations with your kids.
But only you know what is best for your family. You get to decide yourself if this investment is worth it.
