How much does the workshop cost?

The Parenting Safe Children workshop is a $65.00 investment in your child’s safety.

If I attend with my spouse, do we each need to purchase a ticket?

Yes. The Parenting Safe Children workshop is a $65.00 per person investment. Each person present in the workshop is required to purchase their own ticket.

What does my $65 registration fee* include?

We’re glad you asked! When you purchase a seat at a PSC workshop, you are getting:

  • Three decades of expertise in the prevention of child sexual abuse
  • A five-hour professional presentation, including live conversations with Feather about:
    • Raising your child to be “off limits” to sexual abuse,
    • What vulnerabilities adult offenders look for in children and families,
    • Clear descriptions of the grooming process adult offenders use with children and their caregivers,
    • Behaviors of concern in children and adults,
    • Language for discussing boundaries and concerns, age-appropriate sexual behavior in children vs. concerning behaviors and how to intervene in both,
    • Helpful ways of responding to a child who discloses sexual abuse,
    • Language for body-safety conversations with children and adults,
    • Playing “what if” games with children.
    • Utilizing teachable moments,
    • The importance of teaching consent from an early age,
    • Answering children’s sexual questions – the ones you fear the most

You will also:

  • View several videos of real parents speaking with caregivers about body-safety
  • Practice in groups with other participants starting body-safety conversations with caregivers,
  • Receive take-home materials,
  • Earn a certificate of attendance,
  • Gain a sense of confidence that you can take action to keep your child safe.

All, for less than the cost of a car seat, high-end bike helmet, or swimming lessons!

We must receive your payment to reserve your space in a workshop. Registration fees for Parenting Safe Children workshops are non-refundable, and login credentials for the online workshop are non-transferrable.

Parenting Safe Children is unable to credit or refund your registration fee for any reason; moreover, your registration fee cannot be transferred from one workshop date to another workshop date.

If you cannot attend the workshop for which you have registered, you are welcome, however, to ask a friend or colleague to take your place in the workshop for which you have registered. In the event that you cannot find a replacement, you forfeit your registration fee.

How often do you do the workshops?

We offer workshops year-round. Check out our workshop schedule. If you do not see a workshop that is convenient for you, please send us an email so we can keep you updated on future workshop dates.

Who are the workshops for?

Workshops are for parents, caregivers (e.g., grandparents, other relatives, nannies), and professionals who have or work with children, from newborns to 14 years of age. But parents of older teens also attend and find great value.

I provide examples relevant to kids of all ages because it’s never too early or too late to teach your child body-safety skills in an age-appropriate, non-threatening manner.

How many people attend the workshops?

Each workshop has a minimum of 45 people.

Will I receive any materials?

Yes, you will receive a packet of information with numerous useful handouts, including: list of age-appropriate sexual behaviors; questionnaire for screening child care providers and play dates; guidelines for talking with children about body-safety; ‘What If’ scenarios for empowering children to handle potentially difficult situations; and local resources.

Do you sell your book and Conversation-Starter Cards at the workshops?

Yes, and you receive a 10% discount if you purchase both the Off Limits book and Conversation-Starter Cards as a bundle found here.

Where do you present the workshops?

All Parenting Safe Children Workshops are presented live via Zoom. You can register for a live virtual workshop or if cannot attend live, register for the pre-recorded online workshop.

Do you offer a shorter workshop?

No. The Parenting Safe Children workshop is five (5) hours. The length ensures that you leave with practical tools that you can put to immediate use. It’s a small investment of time to keep children safe from sexual assault.

If you are a youth professional, the Parenting Safe Children Professional Training Workshop will likely be a better fit.

For special requests, please email feather to discuss.

I am a survivor. Should I attend? Will it upset me?

You are not alone. Given the prevalence of child sexual assault, there are often survivors participating in my workshops.

I work very hard to create a safe environment and encourage people to seek outside support as necessary. Please email me if you would like a referral.

Many survivors report that the workshop is healing and gives them confidence in protecting their own children. In any case, the information presented is priceless for your family.

Can I bring my children?

The workshops are for adults — ages 18 and up.

Should both parents attend?

Absolutely — partnership makes a stronger Prevention Team™!

Do you provide continuing education units (CMEs)?

We can give you a certificate of attendance for you to submit to your discipline.

Can I host a group of people with your online workshop?

Yes! And it’s just as fulfilling as hosting a live workshop. All you need is a group of people — friends, colleagues, parents, or caregivers — ready to learn how to keep their children safe from sexual abuse. Please email Feather if you’re interested. She’ll guide you through the process and discuss how to do so.
