Parents - Impart God’s Gift of Sexuality with your Child!
“Gave me a chance to talk with my daughter about her sexuality in an age appropriate way.” Parent’s comment from Changes & Challenges
Do you need support in talking to your child about the changes and challenges of puberty? Do you want to
model the virtue of chastity and help them understand their sexuality and true worth? Would you like to do all this in an
environment that is relaxed, fun and respects the dignity of everyone present?
If you answered YES to any of these questions and you're the parent of a 6 th grader, we encourage you to
register for the Changes & Challenges parent-child chastity education program, to be held at St Mary on the Hill in
Augusta on Monday nights, February 16 and February 23 from 7pm to 9pm.
Changes & Challenges is a fun and truly unique two session program for you and your 6 th grader:
 Session 1 is for parents only and includes information about chastity, psychosexual development of your child, and
developing a plan for your emerging teen. No child comes to this session.
 Session 2, your son or daughter comes with you and the groups are separated so that moms and daughters are in
one room and dads and sons in another. Topics covered in session 2 include: fertility appreciation, unique SPICE model
and fetal development.
Space is limited so register soon online at www.familyhonor.org. There is no charge for this program (though donations
will be requested). For more information, contact Ramona Wach at (803) 279-1366.
