For parents and caregivers

Parents and caregivers can play a
fundamental role in violence prevention efforts.

We know it can be challenging to start conversations with children about consent, boundaries, and sexual abuse. KCSARC is here to help you navigate these conversations and healthy relationships with the young person in your life.


100 Conversations

100 Conversations is a toolkit for parents and adults to help have important conversations about sex, relationships, values and safety, with the young people in their lives. 100 Conversations was created in partnership with a group of young people who worked on sexual violence prevention at KCSARC. Conversation topics relate to online and offline safety, healthy relationships, values, and underlying conditions that support a culture of rape, power, control and violence.

See below to get started with 100 Conversations.

Building Resilience Podcast

Building Resilience was created by KCSARC prevention educators to provide information and tangible tools to listeners who want to join us in our mission to end sexual violence.

Parent Workshops

The most effective prevention education is not one and done; it takes a sustained and multi-layered effort, with the support of schools and parents. That’s why we partner with schools on multiple fronts, not only working directly with young people, but also their parents and caregivers:

  1. With students: Our work with young people builds skills and tools to promote healthy relationships and communication
  2. With parents/caregivers: At the same time, we offer workshops for parents, giving them the support they need to engage in conversation with their young person. Topics include building relationships with your young person, communication tools, navigating difficult subjects, the role that parents play in violence prevention, and more.
