Parenting Safe Children
This week’s guest on the Unveil your Voice Podcast is Feather Berkower. Feather Berkower, Founder of Parenting Safe Children, is a licensed clinical social worker and one of the nation’s leading experts in child sexual assault prevention. She has dedicated her career — which now spans over three decades — to educating parents and youth professionals on how to make their communities “off limits” to child sexual assault. Using her community-based approach, she has trained over 150,000 school children, parents, and youth professionals across the United States.(from www.parentingsafechildren.com) Feather and I have an important discussion on why it is important for Parents to actively teach not only their children about body safety rules and the correct terminology for private parts, but also to teach caregivers and those in the child’s circle. It truly was eye-opening to me, and we even utilized examples from my own life on how to teach my children. Feather truly takes a topic that is highly uncomfortable and scary for many and empowers parents and caregivers with the right tools and techniques to show that the topic is as simple as other safety factors we put into place with our children. Check out this episode because Feather is insightful and inspiring through the work that she does to help families keep their children safe. Please note that we openly discuss sexual abuse and we ask that you listen at your own discretion. You can learn more about Feather, her courses, and book at www.parentingsafechildren.com and follow her on social media @parentingsafechildren.

Behind the perfectly curated instagram feed was 17 hour workdays, debilitating anxiety, and sleep deprivation. Through industry conversations and discussions with peers she quickly realized that she was living in a world where everyone was craving a platform to share , which led to the beginning of @halfthestory. It started as a desire to highlight our most human attributes on social media to reignite human connection in the digital space. What began as a $800 grant for a senior art project has since become a globally recognized platform connecting people of all walks of life through sharing experiences, struggles, entrepreneurial journeys, and aspirations. We chat about everything from how Half the Story came to be, the importance of being mindful on social media and how parents can manage their child's screen time, even during COVID-19.
