Rules that Make Sense: How to Set Boundaries That Empower Kids

How do we provide boundaries for young people that maximize their physical and emotional safety without dominating them or recreating oppressive structures? At this workshop, you’ll learn empowering strategies for modifying behavior and setting limits that create positive interpersonal and group dynamics, and encourage self-moderation and cooperation between adults and young people. When we interact with young people, we can’t avoid our obligation to make boundaries for them, but, at this workshop, you’ll learn ways to make the experience easier, less antagonistic, and reflect your deepest beliefs about human relationships, power, and respect.
