Record type: Article


Finds research shows that while parents are potentially an important source of information and support to their children on sexual issues, in practice many parents feel that they lack the skills and confidence to play a direct role in these matters. Presents findings from a pilot project undertaken by Health Promotion Wales and FPA Cymru to enhance parents' sex education skills. Details a series of workshops which were run for groups of parents with differing needs in relation to their children's sex education. Describes how participants took part in pre-workshop interviews to identify their concerns and in post-workshop interviews to assess the impact of the workshops. Presents findings from the workshop evaluations, together with some lessons learned from the project. Advises that the long-term outcome of the project, a resource pack on sex education for parents, is now available.
