Not sure what – or how much – information to share with children and teens regarding sex and sexual health? Do you fear what they might ask? Or how to respond to their questions? Or whether you even know the “answers” yourself?
Saleema Noon knows all about these fears and concerns. An expert in sexual health education and stepparent to two teenage daughters herself, she understands the challenges adults face when addressing sensitive topics with their kids.
In Talk Sex Today, Noon delivers an intelligent and sensible blend of current, inclusive, and practical information for children and teens – and the adults who love them. Noon builds on the foundational work of iconic sexual health educator Meg Hickling and her bestselling Speaking of Sex books to offer adults a break-through guide on teaching “body science.”
iKid teaches 5-8 year old kids the practical skills to create a respecful, kind and playful school environment.
iGirl. A place where modern girls can learn the ropes. Move over, Elsa, Anna and My Little Pony, it’s time for Sexting, Snapchat, low tops and high skirts. Parents, take a minute here and catch your breath. Ready? Good. iGirl is a straight-to-the-point, lighthearted, two- or three-day workshop that prepares 9-12 year old students who identify as girls* for the multimedia pressure-cooker they’ll soon encounter.
Knowledge is power and this workshop, created by Saleema Noon B.A. M.A., will give your daughter the power to make smart decisions and to successfully navigate the changes galloping into her modern life. In a style that’s relevant to preteens, Saleema and her team take the role of big sister, tackling topics like what to expect from puberty, safety on the internet, understanding what makes a healthy body image, and how to be assertive in even the toughest situations.
*Non-binary and gender creative students are also welcome. Please consult with facilitator prior to workshop.
