The adolescent years are a time of identity and role establishment, and children during this phase seek to find out who they are physically, emotionally and socially. This workshop will examine key adolescent issues related to sexuality, and help parents address these concerns in a practical manner, with various strategies on how to help manage difficult topics such as body and hormonal changes, as well as what to do with sexual feelings.
