When the Question is Tough, the Answer is…Apparent
Honest, accurate information about sex—particularly from parents—is the first step toward raising healthy children who make responsible decisions about sex. Although most parents want to provide their children with the knowledge and skills they need, many feel unprepared and uncomfortable when it comes to topics related to sexuality.
Parent educators are in a unique position to support parents in their ever-changing role as sexuality educators of their infants, young children, pre-teens and teens. While the questions and concerns change with age, the goal remains the same: to raise well-informed young people who make healthy decisions throughout their lives. It’s That Easy!
