Talking with your child about growing up

Do you know how or if RSE is taught at your child’s school? Do you consider yourself your child’s prime RSE educator?

When parents are empowered to become proactive RSE educators, they can support their child in building a safe and shared language to talk about bodies, relationships, and sexual health. This is key to enabling children and young people to discuss their concerns and make good choices as they become more independent.

Teaching Lifeskills run Parent Seminars which inform, equip and empower parents in a variety of topics relating to children and young people growing up. The feedback from parents after seminars are always positive and often relate to learning how to put RSE in the context of family beliefs and values.

Teaching Lifeskills run Parent Seminars on “Bodies, Staying safe and Friendships skills” “Let’s talk about Puberty” and “Guiding Teens in a Sexualised world”.

If you have an established group interested in particular RSE topics please do let us know so we can arrange for an appropriate course of seminars to suit your needs.

What participants say about the seminars:

“The seminars emphasised the need for factual information when communicating body parts for both boys and girls. I have been provided with tactics to use when I am confronted with difficult friendship issues, and it has been thought-provoking while giving me tools to work with at home”

 “You are clear and concise in your approach which made us all feel relaxed and allowed for some very interesting and important topics to be discussed in a safe and comfortable atmosphere”                                                                                              

“I was so pleased when you included the area of social and emotional issues of changes in puberty”  

“I feel empowered to inform and educate my children and to help them become confident, knowledgeable and independent about sex ed issues”

“Yoan, I think that you make everyone feel comfortable, unembarrassed and able to talk freely. I really enjoyed all the sessions”  

“The best thing about today is that I feel better prepared and motivated to start the process of educating my kids at home. Thank you, it has been enlightening”

“As a result of your seminars, I have been using new communication skills at home with the WHOLE family”

“Thank you, for demonstrating the need for tackling this positively from an early age, and the tools to start doing so”
