My sister’s nonprofit, The Family Violence Prevention Fund, just launched their Give Respect website and campaign.
This site has a ton of resources for you and your family regarding healthy relationships. Even if you are not directly affected by violence in your home, you probably know of someone who has been in a toxic relationship. At my school, I hear many heartbreaking stories from my students about family members and friends being treated badly.
If you click under the families or parent’s corner section on the Give Respect website, you will find many files which may be used to talk to your child and family about violence and respect. The table topics for dinner discussion are especially great if you have tweens or teens in your home.
In addition to this great information, you can also find additional resources to support the fund, such as purchasing a bracelet at a participating Macy’s for $5.
Lastly, if you find this website as compelling as I do, please click here and add a Give Respect button to your blog, so that your followers and friends may learn more about this worthy cause.
