Sexual and emotional education at school is a delicate issue, loaded with doubts, worries and questions: is it maybe too soon? Is it the teacher’s role? Should only information be given and educating be left to families?
The author accompanies and guides the teacher in facing this challenge. The book supports teachers in bringing out
children’s curiosities and fears, all in a relaxed and respectful environment, in order to exprience sharing of sensations and awarenesses and it is written with a simple and colloquial language to facilitate children’s direct participation and increase their consciousness of a social dimention of awareness.
Useful not only for teachers but also for sexual education experts and educators, the programme is divided into
flexible modules, complete with activities, worksheets and methodological ideas, on the following topics:
– emotional ties (trust, friendship, falling in love and love, courtship);
– changing bodies (puberty, genital anatomy and physiology, differences in gender);
– relationship with your body (embarrassment and decency, self-image, beauty ideals);
– respecting yourself and others (reciprocity);
– being parents and being sons and daughters (fecundation, pregnancy and birth, routes to parenthood, being a parent).
