“Birds & Bees” Basics for Parents of Young Children 7:00-8:30 pm
with sexual health expert Saleema Noon
We’re delighted to host Saleema Noon, leading sexual health educator in our province. Renowned for her work in our schools, and a familiar face in our media, Saleema will tackle this serious topic in a way that is fun, light-hearted and current.
Does the thought of talking about sex with your children stress you out? Don’t worry, you’re in good company!
In this open and informational session, parents will explore sexual health, and understand why we should be discussing this with our children at a young age. We’ll discover why it’s especially important for our deaf and hard of hearing kids to be well-educated in this area.
Attendees will be given inclusive and practical information on how to talk to your kids in a way that they will understand and remember: you will discover how to easily overcome embarrassment when talking about sexual health; learn words, concepts and signs that are easy to use; and leave well equipped to clearly answer the questions children ask.
The workshop is light hearted, but delivers the straight goods on how parents can empower their children to become well-informed, confident and safe.
