Talking to kids about sexuality and reproduction can be difficult for caregivers. The PAC will be hosting “Askable Adult,” a three hour interactive seminar on communicating with children about sexuality and reproduction at Trafalgar School on Wednesday, February 8th from 6:30-9:30 p.m. Tickets are $5.00 per person, available at the door. Please register in advance via our Contact page.
The Askable Adult program covers how to begin discussions and share information with kids in a clear and understandable way. You will hear suggestions on:
- What kind of sexual health information is needed at various ages
- How to handle questions
- What kinds of words to use
- How to discuss feelings, emotions, and family values
- Exploring your own personal beliefs around sensitive topics.
The Askable Adult program is presented by Options for Sexual Health, Canada’s largest non-profit provider of sexual health services. You can learn more about them on their website.
An Askable Adult is someone who is approachable, who listens, and who respects the confidentiality of the young person. The Askable Adult is clear about facts and willing to look for accurate information. Having a sense of humour is helpful; so is sharing feelings.
