A Sexual Learning Curriculum for Parents of Young Children.
Green, Kathryn F.; And Others
The aims of this sexual learning curriculum are to increase parents' emotional and intellectual understanding of human sexuality and to improve their ability to talk about sexuality with their children. Specifically, the curriculum attempts to increase parents' awareness that (1) sexuality includes lifestyle choices, body image, gender role, family structure, and interpersonal relationships in addition to reproductive and erotic behaviors and (2) that sexual learning occurs verbally and nonverbally and is transmitted either directly or indirectly by the family, the school, the media, the workplace, the church, and public policies. Intended for community educators working with parents of young children between 3 to 11 years of age, the curriculum is designed to facilitate group participation and includes learning exercises that enable parents to integrate their experiences with the concepts presented. Appended materials include a workshop evaluation form and a sexual learning inventory for use as a pre- and post-measure of parents' attitudes and beliefs. (RH)
