Join NBC Parent Toolkit and Share My Lesson for a webinar on promoting healthy relationships.
Adults’ focus on the “hook-up culture” has obscured two much bigger issues that many young people appear to be struggling with: forming and maintaining healthy romantic relationships and dealing with widespread misogyny and sexual harassment. But parents and educators often fail to address these two problems in meaningful ways. Instead, many parents fret about having the “sex talk” with their kids and many school-based sex education programs focus on disaster prevention rather than on promoting healthy, respectful relationships.
This presentation will explore Making Caring Common's new report, The Talk: How Adults Can Promote Young People’s Healthy Relationships and Prevent Misogyny and Sexual Harassment, which highlights these issues and offers insight into how adults can begin to have meaningful and constructive conversations with young people to promote healthy relationships and prevent misogyny and sexual harassment in their lives. We’ll also share resources to have those conversations from NBC’s Parent Toolkit.
Join us for this important discussion about the talk we need to have with young people.
