ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

 

At a time when parents can feel overwhelmed and powerless to address issues such as social media, apps, sexting, and pornography, there is a huge amount parents can do.


This parents only night aims to address the intimate questions that parents have while empowering them to be an influential presence in their children’s lives:

  • How to parent your child through a sexually saturated society

  • The truth behind media, marketing and advertising and how it can affect young people

  • Sexting, apps and the online world; the secrets parents need to know

  • Pornography; what you need to know as a parent

  • The effects of poor sexual decision-making

  • Rites of passage; your son’s and daughter’s journey to adulthood

  • The crucial role parents can play in giving their children a healthy understanding of sexuality and relationships
