Questions and curiosity regarding body changes are natural and need answers. This presentation answers questions about the basics of what’s happening to the body and the importance of privacy and safety as youth develop physically and socially.
Young people in their middle school years are often given more independence and freedom as it comes to social media and internet technology. As a result, they are often exposed to entertainment and cultural influences which encourage experimentation and the belief that we are autonomous without risk or consequence to sexual choices. Presenting at age appropriate levels, students are taught the importance of boundaries, healthy relationships, freedom from consequence, goal setting and healthy decision making with entertainment. Physical consequences (impact of STIs, pregnancy) are also highlighted with encouraging consideration of marriage and monogamy. All sessions use power points and interactive activities to highlight the lessons.
