With relationships and sex education now statutory in schools, Sarah Smith (pictured below) will be at CRE North to help Christian educators deliver this important topic in schools, churches and other settings.
In her seminar ‘A Guide to Growing Up: how to have honest conversations with young people about puberty, sex and God’ (11am, Thu 14 Mar), visitors will gain an insight into the relational and sexual health issues young people face today.
‘It is vital that parents/carers and youth leaders tackle topics often seen as taboo and become more effective in talking about bodies, relationships and sex,’ said Sarah, CEO of acet UK, a Christian charity delivering relationships and sex education in secondary schools and training to youth workers, teachers and parents.
Her book, A Guide to Growing Up, is published by CRE exhibitor Lion Hudson, and features detailed chapters on topics such as masturbation and same-sex attraction. It aims to support parents in talking to their children and is an essential guide in any young person’s journey – ‘a guide they can go back to time and again.’
