Taming the Technology Monster with Sissy Goff
Parenting is a more challenging... and sometimes more frightening task than it's ever been before. Much of the fright and challenge have to do with our twenty-first century friend, technology. In this class, we'll discuss trends in technology among kids today, what you can do to protect your family from the dangers of this "monster," and even turn the monster into opportunities for good in the life of your child and family.
How To Talk To Your Kids About Sex with David Thomas
“When should I start the conversation?”
“I don’t want my kids to hear about things first from another source.”
“My nine year old stumbled into something on the internet. How do I address this?” “How much information is too much information?”
“My parents never talked with me about sex. I don’t have a blueprint for any kind of conversation.”
These are questions and comments we’ve heard from hundreds of parents over the years. Most parents at this time in history didn’t grow up with a healthy, ongoing dialogue about sexuality and physical development. The idea of stepping into this conversation with our kids feels a bit like traveling across the country with no GPS. Our kids desperately need education in this arena. We’ll come together to talk around 8 important ideas for shaping a healthy, age-appropriate conversation with our kids about their growing bodies, the changes they will experience, and how/when to talk about sex.
