Are you concerned about what your child is learning about sex via social media and the education system? Action4Canada is hosting a two part series consisting of 9 webinars, for parents of youth addressing key issues related to “optimal sexual development.” This research-based program equips and encourages parents to guide and support their children toward optimal sexual health, protecting their current and future wellbeing in a culture that sexualizes children.
Each one-hour webinar session consists of 40 minutes of live virtual instruction followed by questions and answers.
Part 1: Every Tuesday, Oct 3 – Oct 31, 2023 @ 4pm PST/7pm EST
Part 2: Every Tuesday, January 9 – 30, 2024 @ 4pm PST/7pm EST
