I am offering a summer session of my sex-ed class for parents, the information is below. Parents who have taken this class in the past have said that it has dramatically increased their ability to talk about sex and sexuality with their kids – and that has in turn supported a strong and conscious parent-child relationship, even through difficult times.

Please feel free to forward this e-mail on to anyone you think would be interested. If you live outside of the Austin area, I am available to travel to present this class, or one tailored to your group’s specific needs. E-mail me for specifics.

Beyond
the Birds and Bees: a class for parents

Dr. Karen Rayne presents a four-session class for parents on how to talk with children and teenagers more easily and effectively about issues of sex and sexuality.

Topics include: Current trends in adolescent sexuality, common assumptions about adolescent sexuality (right and wrong!), parental hopes vs. adolescent reality, and talking with your teenager (what to do, what not to do, and how to get started). There is plenty of time for bringing specific questions and difficult situations to the class for answers and discussion. More specific information about the class is available here.

Times: Sundays, 3:30 – 5:00
Dates:June 22nd, June 29th, July 6th, and July 13th
Place: Oak Hill (South-West Austin)
Cost: $175/individual, $300/couple (If this fee is prohibitive for you to attend, please e-mail me and we’ll see what we can do.)

If you have questions or would like more information, please do not hesitate to contact me by phone (924-1814) or e-mail. If you would like to know more about me and my perspectives on adolescent sexuality, read through my blog!

I look forward to talking with you soon,
Sincerely,
Dr. Karen Rayne
