Homework for Parents and Teens. Family Life Education
This document presents techniques for family counselors to use in their existing family life education programs to incorporate parent-children communication into those programs. Twenty-four assignments, divided into junior and senior high age levels, are included as an adjunct to classroom programs which provide structured, at-home activities to increase parent-child communication. Each activity includes an introduction, a parent worksheet, and a teenager worksheet. The homework activities are designed to enhance the role of parents in the value formation and guidance of their teenagers by increasing family communication about sexuality. Assignments at the junior high level examine how well teenagers and parents know each other, better communication methods, messages about sex, sex roles, dilemmas, anatomy, music, and saying "no." Homework at the senior high level concentrates on different views, appreciating people, sex roles and dating, love, relationships, saying "no," parenting, anatomy and physiology, birth control, sexually transmitted diseases, and values and decisions.
