Adult Role Models lead workshops for parents and other caring adults on how to talk with their children about sexuality. The workshop series can be held wherever parents gather — at schools, community organizations, houses of worship, and beyond. The Adult Role Models workshops are fun, interactive, and free of charge. See below for a description of each workshop.
The four workshops offered by Adult Role Models are:
“Talking to Your Children about the Facts of Life” is a two-hour workshop designed to help parents talk with their children about sexuality. The workshop will introduce parents to this sensitive topic and show them how to answer tough questions and use everyday opportunities to start conversations about sexuality.
“Child Development and Sexuality” is a two-hour workshop that takes parents through the stages of child sexual development and explores how they can help their children to become sexually healthy and responsible adults.
“Opening the Lines of Communication” is a two-hour workshop that helps parents to identify the sexuality messages they want to send to their children and the best way to communicate those messages.
“It Takes More Than Talk” is a two-hour workshop focusing on the importance of combining good communication with parental monitoring and other behaviors that support and enhance the bond between parent and child. This workshop will also help parents respond to the growing relationship that children have with technology.
