One of PPSENFL’s most important goals is to engage parents in the effort to help their children develop healthy, responsible attitudes and practices related to sex and reproduction. PPSENFL knows that parents and caregivers are the primary sexuality educators of their children. To grow into sexually healthy adults, young people need skills and information to help them delay sexual activity and to protect themselves when they do become sexually active. Time for Your Teen, an adaptable 4-session program, is designed to promote parent-child communication and healthy adolescent sexual development. Time for Your Teen workshops diminish the anxiety many parents feel when talking with their children about sexuality by teaching them concrete skills. Time for Your Teen workshops also encourage parents to use these important conversations to communicate their own values to their children.
Locations: PPSENFL offers Time for Your Teen® in Palm Beach and Miami-Dade counties, in various community-based settings.
