Personal Space - Parent 2

Foundational

Parents

Your child is participating in classroom activities focused on learning what personal space is and how to be respectful of others’ personal space.

Definition: Personal space means maintaining an appropriate distance from your communication partner. It means not getting too close to someone you are talking with or completing an activity with. It also means that you ask someone for their permission and receive it before you hug or touch them.

We would love for you to keep the discussion going at home! Here a just a few ideas to help get the conversation started:

  • What does it mean to respect someone else’s personal space?
  • What is the distance that we should maintain between ourselves and a communication partner?
  • Why is it important to stay outside of someone’s body bubble?

Activity

Are you good at respecting others' personal space? What makes it hard for you to stay out of others' personal space?
