Understanding Healthy Sexuality

This talk is designed for parents to start open and honest conversations on healthy sexuality, love and relationships with their children. Talking about sexuality can make even the most confident parent nervous. Studies have shown that parental involvement has a tremendous impact on a child’s sexual decisions and identity. This candid and interactive values-based talk aims to equip parents with the skills to start these conversations in a safe and natural manner to help their children make wise decisions in their relationships.

Date: 31 March 2016
Time: 8.00am – 10.00am
Subject: Understanding Healthy Sexuality Talk for Parents
Venue: Centre of Excellence, SASS
