Fort Worth, Texas (PRWEB) December 7, 2009
Parent coaches and educators are often questioned by parents about when to talk to their children about sex and what to say? Some parents are afraid to broach the subject and feel their kids won’t listen. To respond to this growing trend in the parent coaching/education industry, the Academy for Coaching Parents is offering a new specialty niche for all parents as well as teachers, counselors, coaches and others who work with tweens and teens. The four-week teleconference course, Before They Know It All: Talking to Tweens and Teens About Sexuality starts January 4, 2010.
Former health educator and school counselor, Alan Carson now serves as a consultant and certified parent coach to those who wish to receive training in this area. As the author of the course, he explains, “I created Before They Know It All because I saw that a comprehensive sexuality education curriculum is sorely needed to assist parents and tweens and teens with their sexuality as they navigate through a very unhealthy adolescent culture. I understand what kids need to hear. This program addresses all essential topics within the context of the current teen culture and takes into consideration what the research tells us with respect to teen attitudes, beliefs and behavior.”
Topics in this training conference include media’s influence, teen’s behavior and attitudes, sexting, the hook-up culture, dating, and communication, and more. Mr. Carson indicates that “This course will assist professionals in understanding the teen culture kids are growing up in, and in turn assist parents in becoming knowledgeable, confident sexuality educators with their children. The damaging "Hook-Up" culture is powerful, and parents need to understand the decisions their children face with before they can be influential leaders. Research with teens consistently tells us that teens want to know what their parents believe regarding the major issues that confront them.”
Mr. Carson is offering three previews of this material for those considering the course”
