PCS parents learn about ‘Raising Children in a Hyper-Sexualised Society’

On Tuesday 15 August 2017, PCS hosted a seminar for parents, focusing on ‘Raising Children in a Hyper‑Sexualised Society’. Our speakers were David and Katie Kobler from Your Choicez, who presented some amazing information. They gave every attendee food for thought about how to interact with their children around this issue.

 

The seminar was preceded by an optional full buffet dinner, which gave parents and staff an opportunity to build relationships outside of usual school interactions. The food was plentiful and hearty!

 

Over 130 people attended the Parent Seminar, with 87% overall rating it ‘Excellent’ or ‘Very Good’, and 92% rating the speakers as ‘Extremely’ or ‘Very’ engaging and relevant.

 

Here are some comments from attendees:

  • ‘Thank you so much for every piece of info. I feel more ready and confident to move forward and know I can do this with my son.’

  • ‘Relevant. Informative. Interesting.’

  • ‘Please run it again!’

  • ‘It was really great. I would highly recommend to any parents of school aged kids.’

  • ‘Very informative and real to today’s escalating issues arising in the present culture of sexuality in our society.’

 

Look out for more Parent Seminars in 2018!
