The information and attitudes that adults share with their children—intentionally or by default—carry extraordinary power. It is a power that many adults struggle to wield effectively and confidently. Often, their own experiences, perspectives, and worries get in the way. In a small group setting, adults explore their roles as the most important sexuality educators their children will have and find support and courage with one another. 

In six, 90-minute session parents and caregivers are invited to explore their role as the primary sexuality educators of their children through a mixture of discussion and personal reflection. The topics covered in this group will be:  

  • Session 1 – Hopes & Concerns for Kids’ Sexual Health 
  • Session 2 – Communication: How do we talk about Sex? 
  • Session 3 – Gender Identity & Sexuality Orientation: Exploring Emotions & Supporting Self-Discovery 
  • Session 4 – Consent: Building Healthy Boundaries 
  • Session 5 – Social Media: Integrity in a Changing World 
  • Session 6 – Pornography – It’s Not Sex Ed 

To participate in the Parents and Caregivers as Sexuality Educators group at UUC, please register online by Friday, February 21.  Please contact Aria Curtis for more information.
