Speakeasy Parenting Programme
Supporting parents and carers to speak to their children about growing up, keeping safe, emotional and physical well being and relationships.
The Speakeasy course provides an opportunity for parents/carers to gain the confidence and skills needed to talk to their children in an age-appropriate way about growing up. The Speakeasy course is fun and informal and providers a friendly environment where parents and carers can learn together. The course builds on what they already know and helps them gain new information and ideas for how to talk to their children.
The Speakeasy course is delivered over four weeks, in two-hour sessions. Sessions support parents and carers to develop confidence and skills through discussion and practical tasks that cover the following:
• The physical and emotional changes taking place at puberty
• The influence on children from TV, media and peers
• Knowledge of how relationships + sex education (RSE) is taught in schools.
• Information and knowledge about how to access local support services for families
