Sex education at home: a free workshop for parents and carers
This is a free event, but booking is essential as numbers are limited.
Most of us acknowledge that - just like learning how to walk or talk - sexual development is an integral part of growing up. It is going to happen - whether we talk about it or not.
Supporting your child in becoming a safe, healthy and responsible individual is a huge, and sometimes scary, prospect. As a parent or carer, you are primarily responsible – and best placed - for influencing their attitudes, beliefs, knowledge and skills about relationships and sex.
We can get so worried about getting it right that we sometimes end up not talking at all.
Talking about sex with your child – or even thinking about them becoming sexually active – can be uncomfortable. We may fear that talking about sex will make them go out and do it. But, in fact, it has the opposite effect as they are empowered to make healthy, informed choices.
It’s not about having ‘the talk’ that you have one chance to get right. It’s about grabbing opportunities to have little conversations. And lots of them.
Plus, the good news is, it’s never too early – or late – to start. Whether your child is primary age, a teenager or even a young adult.
Designed for parents, carers, grandparents, aunts, uncles - in fact, any adult responsible for a child of any age. This workshop will help you clarify your own values about relationships and sex, and will provide practical tips for how to take advantage of ‘teachable moments’ to stimulate further family dialogue and closeness.
