Parenting Safe Children
This week’s guest on the Unveil your Voice Podcast is Feather Berkower.
Feather Berkower, Founder of Parenting Safe Children, is a licensed clinical social worker and one of the nation’s leading experts in child sexual assault prevention. She has dedicated her career — which now spans over three decades — to educating parents and youth professionals on how to make their communities “off limits” to child sexual assault.
Using her community-based approach, she has trained over 150,000 school children, parents, and youth professionals across the United States.(from www.parentingsafechildren.com)
Feather and I have an important discussion on why it is important for Parents to actively teach not only their children about body safety rules and the correct terminology for private parts, but also to teach caregivers and those in the child’s circle.
It truly was eye-opening to me, and we even utilized examples from my own life on how to teach my children. Feather truly takes a topic that is highly uncomfortable and scary for many and empowers parents and caregivers with the right tools and techniques to show that the topic is as simple as other safety factors we put into place with our children.
Check out this episode because Feather is insightful and inspiring through the work that she does to help families keep their children safe.
Please note that we openly discuss sexual abuse and we ask that you listen at your own discretion.
