What can you as a parent do?
First of all, parents should know their rights. Parents have the right to educate their children according to their own values.
Develop a good relationship with your child’s teacher, so they’ll be receptive to hearing if you have concerns. Insist they let you know ahead of time when sensitive issues will be discussed.
Be proactive in addressing healthy sexuality with your kids. Create a home atmosphere where it’s safe to ask questions.
And tell your kids that you want to hear about what was said in class. This will provide an opportunity to discuss if they’ve heard something they weren’t ready for, or if the lesson seems to contradict the values you teach your child at home.*
