Description

Have you been delaying talking to your children about the birds and the bees? Perhaps you are feeling nervous about saying the wrong thing, embarrassed at thinking about some of your child’s questions, or perhaps you actually just have no idea what to say!

While there are many things that worry us as caregivers, talking to children and adolescents about relationships, sex, and consent is commonly rated as pretty stressful. Unfortunately, without having safe and knowledgeable adults to answer some of their big questions, kids will have to find other ways of accessing the information. This can lead to shame, stigmas, and a variety of misinformation. By educating yourself and being available for conversation, you are not only ensuring that your child has access to relevant information but you are also ensuring that you get a chance to discuss morals and values with them to help them make lifelong, healthy, and empowering decisions for themselves.

COURSE OBJECTIVES:

  • Understand the importance of comprehensive sexual health education
  • Recognize signs indicating both healthy and unhealthy relationships and communication
  • Develop language to assist in teaching children about their bodies and sexuality
  • Learn tips for discussing topics such as safe sex practices, masturbation, pornography and diversity
  • Develop a thorough understanding of consent and how to empower young people to assert their boundaries
