The workshop, hosted by Mosaic Sexual Health Education, will provide parents and caregivers with strategies for healthy communication, tips on discussing sensitive issues and help in identifying personal and family values around issues of sexuality.

“Parents often don't know where to start or what is appropriate for each age,” stated a release from SD73. “Worrying about 'messing up' or being uncomfortable is extremely common and understandable as many parents didn't receive good sexual health education themselves.”

The session will be held at the Henry Grube Education Centre on Thursday, Oct. 24, from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.

The centre is at 245 Kitchener Cres. in North Kamloops, at the north end of Overlanders Bridge.
