A Healthy Sexual Development Workshop for Parents - Free Info Session

As parents and caregivers, we want the best for our kids. But the truth is, talking about sexuality can be intimidating. Parents often don't know where to start or what is appropriate for each age. Worrying about 'messing up' or being uncomfortable is extremely common and understandable as many parents didn't receive good sexual health education themselves. However, parents can and should be the first source of sexual health information for their children of all ages and stages from learning appropriate names of body parts to puberty changes and safer sex practices. 

This workshop, offered by Mosaic Sexual Health Education, helps participants develop comfort and confidence in approaching these topics with their children, no matter what age. This evening will provide parents and caregivers with strategies for healthy communication, tips on discussing sensitive issues, and help identifying personal and family values around issues of sexuality. Navigating the Talk will help clarify what kids need to know and when, how to keep the lines of communications open and help parents become the trusted adults that their child needs. 

Martha Solomon provides sexual health education in Kamloops. She is qualified to teach K-12 children and youth in schools, educators, parents and community groups. She has an extensive background in education, both as a teacher and an administrator and has a passion for teaching.

Solomon will facilitate this session in Room 1 at the Henry Grube Education Centre on Thursday, Oct. 24, from 6:30 pm to 8 pm. The doors will open at 5:30 pm.
