Wine, chocolate and workshop for parents

Good-bye scary, hello empowered!

Join Certified Coach and Sexual Health Educator, Corinne Underwood for an inspiring and informative evening on how to foster a body-positive home and be your kid’s rad and fab go-to mentor(s). Enjoy a glass of wine, eat some chocolate and receive a whole lot of useful and practical information. Resources will be provided and there will be lots of time for questions.

Looking back in time, what support around sexual health do you wish you had when you were a kid? The best mentors for kid's sexual health and well-being are parents. Without a strong support system, kids will turn elsewhere for sex related information. Talking about sex and sexuality and modelling body positivity is the missing link to prevent a whole bunch of problems later in life. The birds and the bees talk is not adequate. Low self-esteem, depression, guilt, body-image issues, increased risk of sexual abuse are just a few of the long- term problems. When we create a safe and open space for our children, we give them a place to foster and thrive and to navigate through the choices and challenges they face. This, in turn, encourages healthy decision making and acting responsibly. It truly takes a village of positive role models and it starts in the home.

Parents will discover:

  • The importance of teaching more than the birds and the bees

  • Why you need to start the conversation way earlier than you think

  • The long-term effects of trauma

  • Who has the most influence over your kids’ decision making

  • The number one way to keep your kids healthy & safe

  • Tips for promoting shameless self-love and on-going body positivity

  • The best way to start the conversations

  • Why knowing your values is key to talking to your kids

  • Tips for making the talks easy, fun and comfortable

  • The importance of teaching boundaries

  • An overview of what kids need to know and when
