The Empowered Family® membership is the first and only program of it's kind. It's designed specifically for you, the adult CSA* survivor parent, who is struggling with how to teach your kid(s) about body safety, sex, boundaries, and consent. Take the stress out of teaching this to your child with an effective done-for-you plan!
*CSA: Child Sexual Abuse
In this membership, you will learn how to navigate through all of these fears, anxiety, situations and more! Parents, who've taken my courses or worked one on one with me, have gained powerful confidence in all of these areas, issues and fears- and you can too! And more importantly, they have empowered their kids on body safety, sex, boundaries & consent to prevent abuse.
" The Empowered Family™ is a must have program to empower all parents and caregivers to protect and empower the children in their lives. While I have expertise in this area, I benefitted so much from being reminded and having support to parent my child in this way. I often felt that people thought I was being difficult by requesting consent and honoring my child's body autonomy, and through the course I was reminded that I was not being difficult there was a purpose to my parenting. That purpose is the priceless teachings of my child feeling empowered and protected. I reccomend this to all parents, it should be a gift to all expectant parents to protect our most sacred gift, our children. "

"Rosalia is teaching about an uncomfortable subject in a way that destigmatizes it. These are lessons that all parents need to learn to protect and empower their kids. My confidence in myself when it comes to dealing with uncomfortable situations has skyrocketed since going through this course. I’m no longer afraid that I’m being over-protective or giving my daughters things to worry about unnecessarily. I’m empowering them to advocate for themselves and that gives me so much peace of mind.

I’m a licensed psychologist that specializes in trauma and has been working for over 10 years with survivors of sexual-related crimes. I’ve been looking for a program just like this to recommend my clients; especially as they struggle teaching consent to their children, or even understanding what is consent, since many of them struggle with boundaries and setting them. Another aspect that I loved about Rosalia is that she walks the talk and provides the information from her experience teaching consent to her children and managing her triggers. If you’re a survivor of any sexual-related trauma, this is a must. If you’re a parent, and you want to learn simple yet effective ways to prevent your children from becoming victims of sexual abuse, then look no further. Please let your friends and family know about this great course to help increase consent-empowered children that will grow into healthy adults."
Dr. Lydiana Garcia,
Licensed Psychologist Specializing inTrauma
Hi, I'm Rosalia Rivera, Consent Educator, Sexual Literacy Advocate, speaker, change agent, founder of CONSENTparenting™ host of the AboutCONSENT™ Podcast, creatrix of CONSENTwear™ and Child Sexual Abuse Survivor turned Thriver.
I help survivor parents learn how to confidently educate their children on body safety, boundaries and consent so that they can empower their family to prevent abuse and break intergenerational cycles.
Unlike safety education programs by non-survivors that can't relate to the struggle, fears and triggers of survivor parents; I offer sensitive, sex-positive, empowering and non-fear action & implementation based how-to-course and membership with guided support.
[ WHY I AM YOUR GUIDE ]
As a mother of three young children myself, my journey started shortly before my oldest son went to his first summer day-camp, over two years ago.
At that time, my deep fears triggered anxiety and feelings of helplessness because the summer day-camp was a new place and I didn't know every single adult or teen that was supervising all the kids. That's when I realized I needed to educate myself on how to empower all of my children on how to avoid or stop any potentially unsafe situation from unfolding.
I was never taught body safety, how to establish boundaries, enforce them, what consent meant or that I had rights over my own body- so how could I teach my child? This is what led me on this empowering path- the fierce desire to protect my kids.
I also realized that the distinction between OVERprotecting my kids VS empowering my kids was an important one. Overprotecting without teaching them tools and skills was not going to help them as they grew older and went off into the world. This is why CONSENTparenting™ was born.
Although there are great resources out there to help parents teach this important information, I could not find any programs or guides to help parents who are survivors, to navigate these very triggering conversations; particularly for survivors who have not healed, or have not shared their story with anyone.
The layers of trauma for a survivor parent are ever more exposed when dealing with these sensitive topics.
My journey has been triggering, YET, also very empowering. With the tools and lessons I have taught my kids, I'm proud to say my children are very consent empowered. They continue to learn each and every day through open communication, modeling and interaction.
I believe that consent education custom tailored for survivor parents is critically important in teaching this information so that it can be as effective as possible. Teaching this material can also be much less triggering when you are guided and supported in your journey. This is the type of program I wish I had had when I started teaching my kids years ago. It's never too late to start and I can show you how. Let's do this!
When you join, you'll get access to the membership portal and Facebook group starting March 2nd. You'll be given a link to book your 1hr consultation with me so we can get clear on your specific goals and help you select the right plan of action!

There is no pressure to engage if you don't want to, you can still participate in the membership anonymously and ask questions through email. All questions will be answered in the monthly Q&A unless it's an urgent matter, in which case they'll be answered in the Facebook group so everyone can benefit from the answer (which will be posted anonymously on your behalf if that is your preference).
The CONSENTparenting™ 101 course releases the content in drip format- meaning that once you finish a lesson, you'll unlock the next lesson, so that you have ample time to dive into that lesson and take action. Baby steps are OK here!!!
The goal of the course is not to bombard you with information, it is to protect your time, attention and focus while sparing you from intense overwhelm.

What happens when I sign up?
You'll receive your log in credentials to access the membership & course portal. There will be a welcome video that will explain the next steps to access the course content which you'll be able to start (at your own pace) as of March 2, 2020
What ages is this program for?
This was created with the age range of 2 years old through 13 years old in mind. But if you have an infant, you can still benefit!
What if my child is 14 and I never had these talks; can I still use the information from this course to teach it?
Yes, you can still apply the information for kids up to 16 years old; however, the material/resources suggested in the PDFs are geared towards younger kids (2-13 years of age). That being said, if your child is between 13-16 years old, I can provide you with a PDF of suggested resources adjusted to the older age range. All concepts and lessons can definitely still apply for parents with children between 0-16 years of age.
Can I take this if my child is younger than 2 years old?
Yes! Absolutely, and in fact, you'll be ahead of the game if you start earlier!
Do I need to complete the course in a certain amount of time?
No, the course is meant to be gone through at your own pace and in conjunction with your energy cycle. There is no set timeline. It's there as a resource you can jump into at any point!
How long will I have access to the course material?
As long as you are a good standing member of the Empowered Family membership. You will always have access and can repeat the classes as many times as you need!
Are resources from your PDF resource guide included in the course?
The PDF resources recommended consist of books, as well as website and video links. The books are NOT included. You can purchase these widely available books online or at any major bookstore. You can also request your local library to carry the books so they can be lent out.
What's included in the membership?
