Parents Matter! - FREE 5 week series for parents of 9-14 year olds

07/23/2012 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Kerr Family YMCA – Raleigh, NC


The Parents Matter! Program (PMP) encourages parents to talk to their children about sexual topics and sexual risk reduction. Parents have the power to positively shape their children’s health behaviors, but their voices often compete with messages sent by the media, peers, and society. This program, designed for parents and guardians of children 9-14 years of age, helps parents improve their skills and increase their comfort level when talking to their children about pregnancy prevention, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), and HIV/AIDS. The PMP provides opportunities for parents to build positive parenting skills, improve parent-child communication, and strengthen relationships with their children.
