As you already know, Get Real engages parents and other caring adults as the primary sexuality educators of their children. Research shows that children want to talk to their parents and other caring adults about sex and sexuality. Although we know that these conversations might be uncomfortable for some, Get Real Family Activities give parents and other caring adults the strategies, tips, and tools they need to help facilitate a dialogue with their children.
We have recently developed an online tool for parents to complete the Family Activities in the Get Real curriculum, called Get Real for Parents. After each lesson in the middle school curriculum, students complete an activity on the Get Real for Parents mobile website using a computer, phone, or tablet. The activity builds off of the information provided during class and encourages open conversation between parents and children about their family values. We’re excited to be able to offer this feature to classrooms and educators across the country this year!
