Parent Workshops

 

Talking to Your Children about Sexuality and Relationships
 
In this interactive workshop series parents and caregivers are provided with tools and techniques on how to discuss sexuality-based topics with their children in age-appropriate and concrete ways. The instructor reviews topics such as child sexual development, boundary setting and healthy relationships. Attendees will also help to develop their own family values around sexuality and relationships. 
 
These workshops can be molded to your community's needs and include communication techniques, handouts and resources to help support parents to engage in these often complicated conversations with their children.
