Parents and Sex Education

Improving Sexual Education Dialogue between Parents and Youth

Parents are a young person's primary educators. We understand that talking about dating, relationships, and sex with your kids can be challenging, and as your community sex educators, we’re here to help! Check out this resource page on our parent programming and for some tips for talking with your young person about sexuality.

Attend a Parent Session

We hold sessions throughout the year at local schools to support parents in having values-based conversations about sexuality with their kids. We cover the tough topics like social media use, pornography, internet safety, identity development, and safe sex and explore how to discuss them within your family’s value system. Contact our Teens Climb High program manager for details about upcoming sessions at tch@compassctr.org or 919-968-4610.
