The  Parenting Continuum presents a free workshop for parents

Sex Education for Early Intervention Parenting


Parents and caretakers can have a powerful influence on their child's sexual decision making, however, most adults could use some help in knowing what areas of sexuality to talk to their kids about and how to talk about it.  The Los Gatos Parenting Continuum is now offering a series of free workshops aimed at dealing with sexuality education for parents/caretakers, grades 5th and older (the workshop is for parents only).

Take home "talk at home" assignments and resource lists for books, Web sites and videos will be provided for your continued efforts at home. The program design is guided by successful approaches in encouraging parent child communication about sexuality resulting from research done by the Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS).
