Saturday morning, 15 February 2014 was an exciting day for parents of Grade 4 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ 6 and teachers in Elementary. They gathered in Grand Chapel IICS to get information how to communicate sex matters to their young ones. The seminar was scheduled to be started at 10 a.m., but some of the parents who were filled with excitement had re-registered themselves around 8 oÃ¢â‚¬â„¢clock.
The parenting expert & well known speaker, Ibu Charlotte Priyatna, led this seminar and Q&A sessions for about two hours. She explained about how God actually created sex to build a divine relationship between a man and a woman who are united in a marriage. She also shared many information about some examples of questions that pops-up in childrenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s mind to fulfill their curiosity about sex and how to encounter those questions with the right information in educative way according to GodÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s perspective.
The warm ambience of this seminar made the parents felt free to ask questions to the speaker. They were still in excitement during Q&A sessions, and supporting one another by sharing their experiences in giving their children the right information about sex education.
Time flew very fast that brought them to the end of the seminar. Many of the parents were looking forward for another sessions of this sex education seminar.
At the end of the sessions, Ibu Charlotte reminded the parents as couples and the teachers to work hand in hand to build a supportive community to lead the children in their growing up stages in GodÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s way.
