Workshop outlines

For adults on talking to kids about sex.

Do you have children in your life, as part of your family, community or work? What are good ways to talk to them about sex, or answer their questions? What is age appropriate?

A strengths-based, supportive approach is used, and the specific content will be tailored to the needs of the participants. Come away with answers to your questions, and strategies for answering questions from the kids and young people in your life. A comprehensive resource list will be provided.
