On My Own: Independence Skills for Tweens with Defend Yourself

November 16, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm


Parents: Is your child—late elementary school or early middle school—heading to school on their own? Walking alone or with other kids? Beginning to take public transit? Staying home alone for longer stretches?

In this workshop geared to 9 to 12 year-olds, Defend Yourself will share skills to help them be logistically, mentally, and emotionally ready for these and other situations, as well as strategies for if something doesn’t go as planned. Parents are encouraged to participate.

Spend an afternoon with your tween helping them cultivate independence, critical thinking, and safety… and give yourself some peace of mind.

The workshop will be led by teachers from Defend Yourself, which has been sharing child-safety skills for more than 20 years! For more info, check out www.defendyourself.org.

Class Fee: $110 for each child/parent pair (if more than 1 child per parent, $50 for each additional child). Limited scholarship funds are available; if you need financial assistance, please email [email protected].
