Sex Ed for Parents
Sex Ed for Parentssm is a 90-minute course in teen realities for the most influential adult in your teen’s life — you. The course is designed to equip parents with the information they need to help their teens navigate the often confusing realms of romance, relationships, and sexuality.
It is unlikely your parents sought the information to be able to offer you the same support. But the world has changed. Teens interact at lightening speed from anywhere at any time. Marketing messages bombard them. Unhealthy sexual images surround them. Marketers use the latest in adolescent brain research to find new ways to manipulate teen consumers. When it comes to getting their own children’s attention, today’s parents face competition their own parents could never have imagined.
Sex Ed for Parents is a community-based effort, hosted by local schools, libraries, churches, and temples, to elevate the conversation about sexual health and provide parents the edge they need to reach and influence their children on this vital issue. The course provides parents with useful information about teen development, teen realities, and parenting strategies for guiding a teen’s sexual maturity in a fast-paced, confused, and sex-saturated culture.Here's what local parents are saying about Sex Ed for Parents:
