Personal Space - Parent 3
Your child is participating in classroom activities focused on learning the importance of maintaining personal space. We would love for you to keep the discussion going at home!
Definition: Personal space means maintaining an appropriate distance from people sharing the same common space with you or during a conversation. The general rule is to keep an arm’s length distance between you and another person.
Student Goal: Within social and educational (classroom, virtual learning, etc.) settings, the student will respect the other person’s personal space.
Here are just a few ideas to help get the conversation started:
- What does it mean to respect someone else’s personal space?
- Is the distance between people the same for everyone?
- What should we say to someone who is standing too close?
- How do you feel when someone invades your personal space?
