You are your child’s first sexual health educator.

You ideally begin by naming body parts, providing loving touch and showing your child that they can come to you with any question. This lays the groundwork for ongoing conversations about relationships, values, decision-making and sexual health.

However, we know that many parents aren’t comfortable or are unsure about how to talk to their children about sexuality. Our group workshops, parent programs and counselling can help you learn how to talk to your child in a way that fits with your values and supports your child’s growth and learning in a positive way. Everyone wants their child to be healthy and happy with their bodies, in their relationships and in the community. We’re here to help.

Parent Workshops

We offer a series of workshops to increase parents’ confidence and comfort in talking with their children about sexuality. Our workshops encourage you to continue exploring your values, thoughts and emotions on an ongoing basis.

Gender Creative Families Night

Centre For Sexuality, in partnership with Families Matter, welcomes parents, families and caregivers of gender creative children, aged 4-14, to a monthly support group gathering. Share stories and experiences, support each other in a non-judgmental and safe atmosphere.

Parent Nights

Parents in Calgary have started hosting these fun and informative evenings for small groups in their homes. You provide the space and the snacks – while one of our educators provides the conversation!
