HIV/AIDS Education Planning Kit for Parents and Parent Groups.
Colorado Parent Teacher Association, Wheat Ridge.; Colorado State Dept. of Education, Denver.
In line with the National PTA's support of various health topics in the school curricula, the Colorado PTA and Colorado Department of Education formulated this educational booklet for parents and parent groups. Included is general information on the nature of HIV/AIDS and how it is transmitted. Current statistics on AIDS cases in Colorado and the United States are presented along with reasons why schools and parents should become involved in HIV/AIDS education. The kit also lists projects that can be used for HIV/AIDS awareness. Since surveys show that parents hesitate to speak with their children about sexuality, the authors present communication strategies that parents can use to discuss sex and list some of the communication barriers parents and teachers should avoid. Tips are also offered on helping children develop responsibility and decision making skills, and how we all can assist those infected with HIV. Following a discussion of Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) and how to avoid STDs, are lists of HIV and AIDS resources in Colorado and the United States. (RJM)
