Personal Space - Parent 3

Continued Growth


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?
