When the topic is sex: facilitating parent child communicaton in the faith community.

Author information

  • The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA.


Significant evidence supports that (a) parent-child connectedness and religion are protective factors against adolescent risk behaviors; and (b) children want to have conversations with parents about sexuality but parents frequently do not feel comfortable or knowledgeable to teach on this sensitive subject. Nurses can be instrumental in facilitating communication between parents and children about sexuality. This article describes a sexuality workshop provided by nurses in a faith community setting.
