50 Shades of Red

Carrigrohane Union of Parishes are hosting two seminars on Saturday February 17th for parents, carers and volunteers who work with young people to help have the difficult conversations, create a vision for their relationships and develop confidence to talk about relationships and sex without embarrassment.

2pm – 3.30pm ‘50 Shades of Red’ As technology develops, the access, affordability and anonymity of the porn industry grows. In this seminar, we will address some of the current trends and also consider why we should be concerned. What impact does porn really have? We want to be able to address this subject with sensitivity, confidence and without embarrassment – how can we help those who are struggling with porn and what hope can we offer?

4pm – 5.30 pm ‘The Birds and the Bees’ How do we talk with confidence to our kids about sex? How do we share our values with them? How do we ensure that we give them great information and equip them to make great choices which demonstrate a value for themselves, relationships and sex? Getting to grips with their world, including current trends in technology, this seminar will equip parents, carers and volunteers who work with young people to help have the difficult conversations, create a vision for their relationships and develop confidence to talk about relationships and sex without embarrassment.

The Seminars will be held at The Parish Centre, Church Hill, Carrigrohane, County Cork and you can book by phoning the Parish Office 021 4877260. All welcome.
