Resilience is hosting a Sunday Story Time series on Facebook Live through the end of August 2020. Please see below for more details.

Sunday Story Time

May 17, 2020 through August 30, 2020
12:00–12:30pm CT

We are bringing education and solidarity to your home! We invite you to an afternoon of reading and reflection. Children ages 4–8 and their families are welcome to join us for a Facebook Live reading of a different picture book every Sunday from 12:00–12:30pm CT on Resilience’s Facebook page.

Join us on Sunday, August 9 as we read Some Secrets Should Never By Kept by Jayneen Sanders, a beautifully illustrated children’s picture book that sensitively broaches the subject of keeping children safe from inappropriate touch. We teach water and road safety, but how do we teach Body Safety to young children in a way that is neither frightening nor confronting? This book is an invaluable tool for parents, caregivers, teachers and healthcare professionals to broach the subject of safe and unsafe touch in a non-threatening and age-appropriate way. The comprehensive notes to the reader and discussion questions at the back of the book support both the reader and the child when discussing the story.

Making Connections: Parent Guides

As caretakers of young people, making connections and continuing the conversation is helpful to developing critical thinking skills and extending compassion. It is also helping us to broaden our understanding of how issues of immigration, incarceration, gender, and more are linked to sexual violence. This connection is crucial when thinking about how to keep our communities safer and work towards a future free from harm. Read and download our parent guides below:
