This month we have delivered two parents’ workshops in Kent, supporting parents and carers in how to have conversations with their children about bodies, relationships and sex.
Alongside discussing topics such as child development and the teenage brain, we also discussed the prevalence of social media use amongst young people, highlighting some of the messages about relationships and sex they may encounter online. We helped the parents to explore different approaches to having ongoing honest conversations with their children rather than focusing on delivering ‘the talk’!
With our vast experience of delivering relationships and sex education in schools and other youth settings, it was a privilege to have the opportunity to help bridge the gap of communication between parents/carers and their children.
We had very positive feedback! One parent thought “making opportunities to have little conversations often was a ‘golden tip’”.
Other comments included:
"This workshop has definitely widened my horizon and I got good resources to look at later on. Thank you so much for this excellent talk!"
"Excellent - well pitched and reassuringly non-squirmy!"
"I will now be confident in having conversations with my daughter."
