Sex education can be one of the more sensitive aspects of parenting.  Parents all know it’s important, but don’t all know how to do it.  Even when your children are in sexuality education programs that you like and think are effective, there is still a lot of support that can and should be provided in the home.

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

Topics include:

  • How to gather your own thoughts and beliefs about the moral and ethical aspects of sex and sexuality and pass them on to your children.
  • What teenagers need to know about sex and sexuality and how you can teach them that knowledge and those skills.
  • Common assumptions about adolescent sexuality and which ones are right or wrong
  • What it means when your teenager doesn’t talk to you and what to do about it, and how to keep the talkative teenagers talking!

Materials will be provided to help get the home conversations started.

Dates: March 7th, 21st, and 28th
Times: Sundays, 3:30 – 5:00
Place: Oak Hill (South Austin)
Cost: $100/individual, $150/couple
