We believe that shared accurate information and open communication within the family is a vital part of giving teens the confidence and resolve to apply what they learn in OWL. While the youth are attending the OWL workshops, parents attend special sessions just for them. Parents are briefed on the same subjects the youth are covering in their sessions. This gives parents a chance to ask questions, explore topics, and gain support from other parents.
“Parents are children’s primary teachers, but what is society teaching our children about sexuality? Our Whole Lives is an antidote to sexualized media messages, peer pressure, misinformation and prejudice. It provides accurate, age-appropriate information, puts sexuality in the context of values and personal responsibility, supports healthy decision making, and strengthens social skills. These skills and values help prepare youth to make healthy choices for life.” source: uua.org
