Description

It's not always easy to talk to your kids about growing up.

The Speakeasy course is designed to provide parents and guardians with the information, skills and confidence they need to talk to their children about relationships, sexuality and keeping safe.

This special six-week programme is run by the IFPA, Ireland's leading sexual health charity, and is hosted by SWICN, the South West Inner City Network.

It's suitable for parents and guardians of kids of all ages - whether they're junior school age, entering puberty, or already teenagers.

There is no cost for participants and the class size is limited to ten people.

This course takes place every Monday from 10am to 1pm, beginning on 16th September 2019. The final class is on 21st October.

“The guided discussion helped me be more clear, confident, fluent and aware of questions relating to sex, sexual health, and even my own values concerning these issues. I now notice opportunities for discussing this information with my daughter and feel more confident about what is appropriate and when. My daughter has noticed this new confidence in me and has approached me with her questions far more frequently and openly than she had before.”
