Our Whole Lives – Spring Offerings

AGE-APPROPRIATE SEXUALITY EDUCATION

 The Unitarian Universalist Society of Amherst will offer K-1 and 4-6 Grade OWL: Our Whole Lives Sexuality Education this spring. OWL offers step-by-step, age-appropriate, interactive lessons for children and youth facilitated by trained adults.

Why is sexuality education important?  Honest, accurate information about sexuality changes lives. It dismantles stereotypes and assumptions, builds self-acceptance and self-esteem, fosters healthy relationships, improves decision making, and has the potential to save lives.

K-1 OWL: This 8-session program offers information for children about birth, babies, bodies and families. The program offers support for parents as the primary sexuality educator for their children.

4-6 OWL: Offers an 8-session program for learning about and discussing the physical and emotional changes of puberty. Participants will read It’s Perfectly Normal  by Robie H. Harris, and examine topics such as values and sexuality, communication and decision making. Each session includes a Home Link -a homework activity for parents and children to complete together.

Dates will be coordinated once parents indicate their interest (probably in March and April).  Registration will be open until at least six slots are filled for each group. Please consider making a donation of $150-$300 per family for participation. For more information, please contact Rebecca Fricke (rebfricke@gmail.com or 413-687-8722).

Program sponsored by the Unitarian Universalist Society of Amherst.
