Shownotes

April is sexual assault awareness month -- a reminder to acknowledge and support survivors, advocate for further awareness, and educate ourselves and our kids.

While we know what sexual assault is on some visceral level, I wanted to do a quick episode that spells out what body boundaries, sexual assault, and consent are.

It's so hard to know when to talk about these topics - and how to talk about them without instilling fear or anxiety. So I tried to find ways to raise the topics organically, what to say as a baseline of understanding, and other helpful phrases that our daughters need to hear.

Listen to hear:

  • The definition of sexual assault and consent
  • How to bring up this topic with your daughters, including using current events and pop culture to help facilitate conversations
  • 7 things to say to your daughters, to foster open communication, and help them feel more empowered and aware about sexual assault going forward

Other episodes to check out:

  • RAINN.org
  • 24/7 Free Support Hotline - 800-656-HOPE (4673)
