Parent adolescent sexuality class announced

I am pleased to announce an up-coming class on adolescent sexuality for parents in south Austin.

This class will cover a variety of issues that are critical for parents of current or future adolescents to understand in order to support the healthy sexuality of their children. Because of the dramatic changes in the adolescent sexual landscape over the last decade, I will begin the classes by presenting an overview of adolescent sexuality as it is being enacted in middle schools and high schools all over the United States (yes, even at the Austin Waldorf School!). Discussion over the following three weeks will include topics such as assumptions about adolescent sexuality and their applicability to our children, what kind of romantic and sexual experiences we hope our children have (or don’t have), and of course, most importantly, how to talk with our children about sex.

For more information about what we will cover in class, please look at my overview of the parent class on my website.

Please e-mail me ( with questions or to register. Sign up soon, because class size is limited!

Here’s the info:
Sunday afternoons from 3:00 – 4:30
June 17th, 24th, July 1st, and 8th
Cost: $175/parent or $300/couple

  1. Karen, this class sounds very valuable. What a shame I’m leaving Austin before I can attend it! Let me know if you know anyone in the Denver area doing this kind of work.

    I am looking at the question you pose to the parents in your class: How would you like to see your child engaging (or not) romantically, physically, and emotionally, at the following ages: 11, 13, 16, 18, 21, and 30. Very good exercise for every parent to go through.

    Thanks for your good work, Karen.
