Have the Talk — and Say More

Resources from Making Caring Common show how adults can (and should) help young people form healthy relationships, reduce misogyny, and prevent harassment
Posted: December 19, 2018
When Making Caring Common released a landmark report on sexual harassment last year — a report that intentionally coupled healthy relationships with prevention of misogyny and harassment — the researchers wanted to fill a critical gap in our response to the epidemic of sexual assault. The report found that despite alarmingly high rates of assault and harassment in schools and workplaces, most parents and educators were not talking to young people about any of it — about how to form a healthy relationship, how to understand consent, and how to avoid doing harm to themselves and others.
But such conversations are sorely needed, the report found. “Parents, caregivers, and educators are our first line of defense in preventing misogyny and sexual harassment, and in raising our children — our boys in particular — to clearly understand and take seriously sexual assault and consent,” said Making Caring Common’s director, Richard Weissbourd, in an email earlier this year. “Whether you are raising children or teaching children, these conversations can make an immeasurable and lasting difference in their lives.”
