Building Bridges - implementation guide cover.

Early adolescence and puberty are turbulent times with significant changes in young people’s life.

Most parents want to support their children as they go through this phase of changes in their life, however, often are unsure how to start conversations or how to address sensitive topics.

Conversations on Sexuality and Relationships for Parents of Young Adolescents is a 10-session training curriculum addressed to parents and other caregivers of young adolescents aged 10-14.  The overall goal of the curriculum is to explore with parents the physical, emotional and mental journey that their children go through during adolescence and empower them to support their children on this journey. The specific objectives are: 

  • To give parents tools to discuss and communicate with their young adolescent children about relationships and sexuality 
  • To increase parents’ knowledge on sexual and reproductive health and rights, and children’s sexual development
