The Department of Youth of Xàbia has scheduled a workshop on sexuality for fathers and mothers of adolescents, a subject linked to the most intimate spheres of life and about which, on many occasions, it is difficult to talk with children.
As explained by the department that coordinates Montse Villaverde, this school has been organized in three sessions (on February 10 and 17 and March 3); will be taught at the Culture House, from 19:20 p.m. to 30:12 p.m., and is aimed primarily at parents of young people between 16 and XNUMX years old. Registration, free, can be formalized now through the email email@example.com
The topics that will be addressed are: sexuality and affectivity, family diversity and families free of stereotypes; affective-sexual education to prevent gender violence and promote equality, pornography and social networks, specialized resources in affective-sexual education and the declaration of sexual rights.
This workshop is intended to provide a space for people who want to participate in the emotional and sexual education of their sons and daughters so that they can enjoy a full and healthy sexuality, learn to solve or address related situations that concern them or clear up doubts about the development of children. Stereotypes, myths and limiting beliefs will also be reviewed.
Specialists in sexology point out that learning from television series or the Internet is not the best way or the most truthful information, while highlighting how important it is to link sexuality with affection, respect for oneself and others, knowledge of the body and feelings. They recommend parents to accompany them in this process, to provide them with tools that help them maintain healthy and fulfilling relationships.
