Kharkiv Regional Center for Social Services for Family, Children and Youth invited Peace Engineers

On September 20, participants of the Peace Engineers School Andrii Siniakov and Olha Klymenko were invited by the head of Kharkiv Regional Center for Social Services for Family, Children and Youth, Olena Hvatynets.

Future Peace Engineers held a dialogue meeting with parents who are bringing up foster children from different areas of Kharkiv Region.

The topic of the dialogue was devoted to the practice of nonviolent communication with teenagers: namely, for children who came from families where parents are deprived of parental rights how to give up thieving, and for foster parents how to turn a demand or order into a request through feelings and needs, as well as how the safety of a new family contributes to the education of children with traumatic experiences.

During the interview, families shared their experiences with those who had problems and tension with foster children.

In general, the feedback shows that the meeting was interesting and positive.

The participants made a request to stay in touch for the further cooperation and joint activities.
