Parents from Centennial and Casey Middle Schools do now! Peers Building Justice, MESA’s collaborative program with SPAN (Safehouse Progressive Alliance for Nonviolence) spent two hours with two groups of parents this April practicing the skills needed to have difficult conversations with teens and pre-teens. The goal of the workshop, designed by Colorado Youth Matter, is to help parents have more conversations with their children about sex and sexual health and to make those dialogues positive so that they will be open to more conversations. Additionally, MESA brings the perspective that these “birds and the bees” conversations aren’t just about biology, but also about respecting boundaries and communicating about consent. These workshops are available in both English and Spanish.
