Þ Maintaining a non-punitive stance toward sexuality?
Þ Demonstrating that you are knowledgeable about sexuality?
Þ Discussing sexuality with your children?
Þ Providing age-appropriate information on sexuality to your children?
Þ Trying to understand your kid’s point of view?
Þ Helping your child gain an understanding of your values?
Þ Setting and maintaining limits for dating and other activities outside of school?
Þ Staying actively involved in your son’s or daughter’s life?
Þ Asking questions about friends and romantic partners?
Þ Providing a safe environment for your children?
Þ Offering to assist adolescents in accessing reproductive health care services?
Þ Helping your daughter or son plan for their future?
Þ Seeking appropriate guidance and information for yourself as needed?
