A one-day course

Children and young people consistently say that they would like to be able to talk more with their parents about these issues. Parents also would like support and information to enable them to do this with comfort and confidence.

The range of issues presented by parents can vary enormously, from responding to questions from young children, to dealing with changes at puberty, to supporting teenagers make decisions around their sexual health, identity and relationships.

This one-day course will be useful for anyone who works with parents including: Parent Group facilitators, Early Years workers, Health Visitors, Parenting workers, Teachers and Volunteers supporting parents etc.

Aim

For practitioners to develop their skills and knowledge, and to work more confidently in supporting parents and carers to communicate with their children about sex and relationships.

  • Be provided with relevant factual information including: the law, puberty and resources to support them in their work
  • Have considered the sex and relationship educational needs of children and young people, and how parents can support these
  • Have identified strategies to support parents and carers to talk more confidently to their children about sex
