Raising Teens Series:
As part of our Ministry Plan, we have decided to run a series of information sessions/seminars that address contemporary parenting issues.
The primary audience for these sessions are families in the community who have no connection to Church. This is part of our plan to “Embrace our Local Community.” (DNA No.3)
We are currently planning on running two sessions in 2018 on the following topics:
- The Impact of Pornography on Young People (‘It’s Time We Talked”)
- Mental Health
TOPIC 1: “It’s Time we Talked”
Pornography has become a parenting issue we can’t afford to ignore… Over the past decade or so, pornography has become mainstream. For young people growing up in this era of ever-new and accessible technology, it is almost impossible to avoid exposure to pornography. Consumption – particularly for young men – has become normalised.
In this session, led by Maree Crabbe, the Director of the violence prevention project Reality & Risk: Pornography, young people and sexuality, will explore:
• What do parents need to understand about pornography and its influence on young people’s sexual understandings and expectations?
• How can parents support their children’s healthy social and sexual development in an age of pornography?
DATE: 31 July 2018
LOCATION: The Church Hall
We’ve created a Facebook Event for “It’s Time we Talked’, you might like to share it with some friends.
