When the Script Gets Tricky: Facilitating Tough Conversations with Your Child


Even the youngest children can ask some tough questions and, even as adults, we don’t always have the answers. In this workshop, we’ll be examining tools we can employ for navigating touchy, sensitive, or complicated subjects with our children. Through the use of drama strategies, we’ll be prepared to initiate or continue these kind of conversations when they inevitably arise. We’ll answer the following questions:

• What are age appropriate words and language I can use when my child brings up a topic I’m unfamiliar with?
• How much information is appropriate to give them?
• What happens when my child and I disagree?
• What’s the best way to start the conversation? How do I end it?
•If I am caring for children of many different ages, how can I have meaningful conversations with them all?
