ABOUT THE COURSE
“I hate kids.” It’s a common ageist phrase that most of us have heard or even said, but we never really deep it. We hate kids, but are, supposedly, against child abuse or mistreatment. However, we rarely acknowledge how this violence is systemic in the form of ‘anti-child ageism’ (coined by me, Aiyana Goodfellow) which is part of the patriarchal system.
Why You Hate Kids Intensive is a self-paced course offering the opportunity to learn about anti-child ageism from the often unheard perspective of a teenager. Through eight in-depth modules you will have a unique opportunity to gain an overview of anti-child ageism as part of the patriarchal system as well as learn how it exists within the context of other oppressions.
I am a young person myself, which is what makes this course even more unique. Not only are we tackling the woefully under-discussed oppression of children, but this course has been developed by a young person with current lived experience.
