Children, Sexuality & Society
Parents are children’s primary teachers, but what is society teaching our children about sexuality? Our in-person training program Our Whole Lives is an antidote to sexualized media messages, peer pressure, misinformation and prejudice. It provides accurate, age-appropriate information, puts sexuality in the context of values and personal responsibility, supports healthy decision making, and strengthens social skills, these skills and values help prepare youth to make healthy choices for life.
Neighborhood Place of Puna provides, Our Whole Lives: Comprehensive Sexuality Education, in East Hawai’i, as part of our mission to strengthen families and communities.
Our Whole Lives (OWL) is a secular curriculum appropriate in a variety of settings. The curriculum is age appropriate, with different curricula designed to speak to participants’ needs, by age group.
You can find more information about OWL here.
