Coming out and inviting in
Join Twenty10 and our Strong Safe Fabulous youth ambassador for this webinar, looking at supporting young people who have ‘come out’.
Parents and carers have a critical role to play in preventing violence. Parents and carers establish how feelings are talked about in the home and support children to understand gender. They foster the values that shape children’s future behaviour, and can model respectful relationships.
All adults and children have the right to feel safe at home. No parent wants their child to grow up to become a perpetrator or a victim of violence, however research says this is more likely to happen if children grow up exposed to domestic violence.
The good news is that there is so much we can do at home to prevent violence for our children and the whole community.
In this section you can learn more about the practical things that parents and carers can do that make a big difference, and the supports available to help build safe communities for LGBTIQA+ people and families.
Note – Parents, carers and educators should view the content of each training session prior to sharing the training with children to ensure it is age-appropriate for those in their care.
Featuring the team from Wear It Purple, this practical webinar provides an introduction to some of the important issues young LGBTIQA+ people and young people being raised by LGBTIQA+ parents are facing, and how they can be kept safe and be seen.
