About the event

ABOUT 

“I hate kids.” It’s a common 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 agknowledge how this violence is systemic in the form of ‘anti-child ageism’ (coined by me, Aiyana Goodfellow) which is part of the patriarchal system.

This course is an opportunity to further one’s knowledge and analysis of anti-child ageism, building on the workshops in my anti-ageism foundation course Why You Hate Kids 101.

This course is for you if…

  • You are an alumni of Why You Hate Kids 101 (fka Has Oppression Found a Home in You?)
  • You have been or are being supported by my work as The Youth Doula
  • You have read my book INNOCENCE & CORRUPTION: An abolitionist understanding of youth oppression
  • You have an adequate understanding of ageism, which allows you to connect this to other aspects of patriarchy and different types of oppression

SCHEDULE & ACCESSIBILITY

The course will run over five weeks, at 6pm BST and held on Zoom.

Each session will be 90mins long. Automated captions will be available and breaks are scheduled into the workshops. Sessions will be partially recorded for reviewing purposes, but this should not be considered another way to access the course: your live attendance shapes the space.

Our schedule:

  • Age-Trauma – Coming soon.
  • Ideologies of Abuse –  Coming soon.
  • Accountability & Harm – Coming soon.
  • Care & Birth – Coming soon.
  • Community Reflection – The finale of our course. We reflect on previous sessions and have an open community-led discussion.

FAQs

Q: What is the difference between WYHK Intensive and WYHK 101 & 102?

A: Why You Hate Kids 101 (introductory) or Why You Hate Kids 102 (deeper analysis) allow you to explore information through weekly workshop cohorts that run at various times throughout the year. 

Why You Hate Kids Intensive is self-paced, including workshops from both 101 and 102 as well as further content.

If you prefer learning by yourself, need the course to be flexible, and/or want a particularly deep dive into the topics, go for WYHK Intensive. 

If you prefer learning alongside others, need a defined timeline to motivate you, and/or real-time support to process information, go for WYHK 101 or 102.

Q: Who is this course for? Are there pre-requisites to joining?

A: Anybody, of any age, can join this course, as long as you have an open-mind and interest. 

This course if for you if…

  • You are an alumni of Why You Hate Kids 101 (fka Has Oppression Found a Home in You?)
  • You have been or are being supported by my work as The Youth Doula
  • You have read my book INNOCENCE & CORRUPTION: An abolitionist understanding of youth oppression
  • You have an adequate understanding of ageism, which allows you to connect this to other aspects of patriarchy and different types of oppression

Q: Isn’t all this information available somewhere else?

A: Not as far as I’m aware! I am a strong believer in “create the things you wish to see in the world” which is the driving force behind all my many projects, hence why I created this course and wrote my book INNOCENCE & CORRUPTION. My work is incredibly unique: not only is ageism a highly under-discussed system of oppression these conversations are rarely led by young people ourselves. The course explores and expands on theories from my book, but there is loads in both the course and the book that does not overlap so there’s always opportunities to learn more!

Q: Can I book for my community group, organisation, or family?

A: If you are looking to book for multiple people (e.g., as a family or organisation) OR if you would like this course – or parts of this course – to be personalised for your company, organisation, or community group please contact me.
