Talking about relationships and sex with children and young people
So many children and young people are crying out for the church to talk about relationships and sex. This day will encourage leaders to think about the why and how of putting this into practice. We’ll consider healthy relationships, self-esteem, and media influences such as sexting and porn. This Session will be run by a member of Acet UK’s Esteem Network.
