StARTing Conversations

How do you explain sensitive topics to kids? Sickness and disabilities, death and grief, unconventional families — these are just a few of the complicated issues that kids might be interested in learning about, or might be experiencing themselves.

This Sunday, Sept. 9, the Ayala Museum is holding conversations with the authors of books written specifically to explain such sensitive topics to children. From 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., join Kata Garcia, author of “My Family,” for a lecture on unconventional family settings, and Ergo Tinio, author of “Salusalo Para Kay Kuya” for a lecture on dealing with loss and trauma. Through these sessions, adults can learn how to teach kids about complicated issues in a way that is understandable and age-appropriate.

Ayala Museum is located at Makati Ave. cor. Dela Rosa St., Makati City. For tickets and reservations, visit the Facebook event page.
