Sexual violence is an issue that affects everyone in a community regardless of age. All of us have a role in building safe, healthy relationships and communities. Promoting such relationships begins by strengthening communication and instilling respect for   self and others in our children.

Healthy sexuality is emotional, social, cultural and physical.  It is our values, attitudes, feelings, interactions and behaviors. It changes with time and experience.

Some of the topics to be covered are:

  • Why it’s important to talk with our children
  • Modeling and promoting healthy boundaries
  • Protecting children from sexual predators
  • Our role in prevention
  • Healthy relationship choices
