About The Event
How can we ensure that we are equipping our young people with the values, skills and information necessary to make healthy choices in the area of relationships and sex?
In the current context of immense media and peer pressure, this programme seeks to empower parents, carers and those working with young people to tackle the sensitive issues, to explore practical methods of communication and to understand healthy boundaries for relationships. This interactive workshop allows parent and cares to engage with important issues including media awareness and understanding the world of young people. Emphasis on risk and protective factors and putting good boundaries in place will be discussed. It also examines opportunities for further support for parents.
This seminar is a great opportunity to gather parents and carers together to explore some of the topics and ideas that can sometimes leave parents feeling embarrassed, ill-equipped and anxious. Research continues to suggest that parents are the greatest influence on young people so programmes like this are very important.
