We are kicking off Sexual Assault Awareness & Child Abuse Awareness month with Rosalia Rivera from CONSENTParenting and AboutCONSENT Podcast.
We had a very informative, insightful, and touching conversation. We could have gone on for hours talking about consent, sexual abuse, grooming, and human sex tracking.
She is changing the dialogue of teaching from a fear-based conversation to a consent-based one by working on dismantling rape culture, creating a consent culture, and helping survivors step into their healing journey. She teaches parents, especially parents that are survivors themselves, how to navigate the journey of abuse prevention, break the cycle and empower all of us!
These are very valuable conversations that we need to have with both children and adults. She offers plenty of free resources in her private Facebook group, website, and podcast. As well as offering classes, workshops, and courses.
