Special Interest: When is Too Much Protection?
How much is too much? When is enough? Are we creating policies and procedures that are so restrictive that children and youth can’t have fun anymore? Is there too much of a good thing? Can protection go too far? How can we find the balance between protection and risky play? Let’s Plan to Protect®!
This training is designed for volunteers and staff who work with the vulnerable sector, parents and guardians and organizational leadership. In this webinar, Melodie Bissell, the President and CEO of Plan to Protect®, will share how to strike the balance between protection and overprotection. She will address the symptoms of overprotection and recommendations for avoiding overprotection while still making sure we are doing our due diligence. We will provide practical tips for creating a safe place while avoiding the need for a bubble. Let’s raise the bar on protection (but not TOO high)!
