Out in Public During Covid-19 - Making Family Safety Plans
“It’s stressful enough going out by myself, but trying to keep my kid safe and also out of other people’s spaces was making me even more anxious. Kidpower strategies have helped me stay calm, assess my options, make safety plans with my kids – and respond with calm and confidence when others in public are acting in ways that aren’t safe.” Learn these strategies and more ways to help your kids be safe in public and with strangers – during the pandemic and beyond. Your US$60 registration includes one-on-one email support with questions before and after the workshop and links to resources to help you and your family apply, adapt, and practice the skills.

TELL US WHAT YOU NEED!
Our online workshops are tailored to the life situations of each group based on your needs and priorities. During this time of social disruption brought about by the pandemic, people commonly ask us about skills, tools, and strategies to:
- Develop emotional safety skills and strategies
- De-escalate, avoid, and resolve conflicts with family/roommates in close quarters
- Set, negotiate, and uphold boundaries with children and teens
- Effectively communicating boundaries with other parents whose views and priorities are different
- Make side-by-side remote work and distance learning less stressful and more productive
- Parent babies and toddlers, solo or as a pair in isolation without other adult help
- Develop strategies to prevent negative impacts of social isolation
- Advocate long-distance to help protect loved ones you cannot be with in person, such as to help them get medical care or food
- Make safety plans for stay-at-home situations with someone who can be hurtful, abusive, or violent
- Advocate to get help for yourself and those you care about who are now distanced from therapists, teachers, and other care providers, who were counted on for ongoing healthcare and well-being
- Help others, including children, learn and use age-appropriate versions of these skills
- Making safety plans for going out in public during the pandemic
