How to Teach Kids and Teens About Sexual Ethics: Parent Education

In an age where young people have easy access to information about relationships and sex through the internet, pop culture, and pornography, it's that much more important for them to develop the tools and ethical compass they need to navigate the narratives and scripts they may encounter, intentionally or unintentionally, online or through their peers.

 

In this Parent Education Talk, Natasha offers parents critical tools and strategies to scaffold conversations  about puberty, sexual ethics/values, consent, decision making, and sex in age and developmentally appropriate ways. She also addresses why it's critical to start these conversations sooner than later.

Cultivating Critical Consent Literacy

In this talk, Natasha not only addresses how to co-create consent culture, but also how to complicate issues of consent so that students can become aware of the many factors that can affect communicating boundaries and preferences across lines of power and difference. Utilizing interactive exercises, storytelling, and more, Natasha helps make the topic of consent both relatable and relevant across ages. She lifts up student experiences to help support students in cultivating awareness,  empathy, and ethical behavior in friendships and relationships.

Our time-tested Consent and Healthy Relationships Assembly is a theatrical performance of carefully curated stories based on high school students’ real accounts of sexual harm. The assembly fosters empathy and critical thinking by offering school audiences a variety of perspectives from students who have navigated consent—from victim to perpetrator to bystander. The assembly promotes a culture of inclusion by exploring various kinds of relationships and inspires students to embrace the values of affirmative consent and just relationships.

Sexual Harassment

While most kids and teens have heard of the term "sexual harassment", they seldom know what it means--and what it actually looks like and sounds like. Without understanding what sexual harassment is, it becomes difficult if not impossible for young people to name their own experiences or identify and stop their own behaviors. In this critical two-part class, students learn about various types of sexual harassment and what they can do to prevent it from happening.

Relationship Literacy

Though many students don’t start dating in middle school—or even high school—they're already developing ideas about dating, relationships, gender, power, and the changing (and sometimes hurtful and bewildering) nature of friendships. They're also in the midst of developing ideas, belief systems, and practices when it comes to handling conflict, asserting/respecting boundaries, and navigating strong feelings. Using values clarification exercises, role-playing, and more, this series can support students in actively building resilience and muscle memory so that they can communicate to others, navigate their friendships/relationships, and make decisions based on ethics and personal values.
