Update as of March 24, 2020:

With the social distancing and stay-at-home order stemming from the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis, this workshop will now be offered online only. Once you register, you have 60 days to watch the workshop in sections or all at once. It's the exact same workshop as the live version, just watched from the comfort of your own home.

If you have extra time on your hands while you're staying safe at home, why not learn how to keep your kids safe once they're out in the world again?

During a time of crisis, this topic is particularly important. USA Today released an article on March 21st titled, "Children more at risk for abuse and neglect amid coronavirus pandemic, experts say." With stressed-out adults, cases of child abuse rise. Let's keep that from happening!

This is not just for people in the Denver area, but globally! Register now through the Parenting Safe Children websiteFeel free to invite friends and family who might also like to learn about this important topic to register as well.

See below for more information on the workshop, and stay safe out there!


As we plan for our kids' busy summers - camps, swimming, playdates, travel - how can we be sure we're keeping them safe? How can we protect them so they aren’t in a position where they need to protect themselves? How do we give them the tools they need to protect their own bodies?

Local taekwondo school Venture Martial Arts, a long-time instructor of bully self-defense and stranger danger for kids, will host Feather Berkower's acclaimed workshop, Parenting Safe Children,
on Sunday, May 17th up at the Shops at Northfieldonline to help educate parents about sexual abuse and what we can do to keep our kids safe.

If you haven't yet attended Feather's workshop and you're a parent, teacher, aunt/uncle, grandparent, or work with kids in any way, do. It's absolutely worth your time and money. One of our guest bloggers attended a couple of years ago and wrote about her experiences. She left feeling educated and empowered.

Feather was also recently interviewed by CPR's Ryan Warner for Colorado Matters' story about preventing childhood sexual abuse if you would like to hear more directly from her.

This is a difficult topic, but if we're all talking about it together, we can make a difference for all kids in our community.
