“It’s Easier Than You Think: Tips for Talking with Your Kids About Sexual Health”

Jun 28, 2017

The Saskatchewan Prevention Institute has recently completed a DVD focused on providing parents with useful information about how to talk to their children about sexual health. Although parents may find these conversations challenging, research has shown that they can be effective sexual health educators when provided with support and accurate information. The DVD, titled “It’s Easier Than You Think: Tips for Talking with Your Kids About Sexual Health”*, includes tips for parents, expert advice, and parent experiences.

To order the DVD or view this video, please visit: http://www.skprevention.ca/sexual-health/parents-as-educators/    

A literature review focused on parents as sexual health educators for their children is also available from the Prevention Institute’s website (see http://skprevention.ca/resource-catalogue/sexual-health/parents-as-sexual-health-educators/). This literature review defines sexual health and sexual health education, discusses potential facilitators and barriers to parental provision of this type of education, and provides suggestions for parents. A list of online sexual resources for parents is also shared.

The Saskatchewan Prevention Institute is available to provide presentations to parents about how to talk to children about sexual health. If you are interested in hosting one of these presentations, please contact the Cara at czukewich@skprevention.ca  or call (306)651-4316.

McKenna Fineblanket won first place at provincials and third place at nationals.

May 18, 2017

McKenna Fineblanket attends Bishop Roborecki School in Saskatoon. She is back with a big 3rd place overall win, having just competed in the National Spelling Bee Championships, representing Saskatchewan in Toronto, Ontario. To get there, she won first place in the Primary Category in the First Nation’s Provincial Spelling Bee competition that was held at the end of March in Saskatoon. More than 150 kids from across the province competed to win a chance to travel to the big T.O. and take part in the annual National Spelling Bee.

Fineblanket started studying her first 400 words last fall, which was how she won in Saskatoon. After the celebrations and fan fare it was right back to focusing on the next 400 words, this time with less than a month to prepare. “This experience has allowed McKenna to obtain pride and confidence in herself, and expand her vocabulary.” says her proud mom, Brittney Olsen. “I’ve always told her that she can do anything she sets her mind to and I believe that with the right guidance, love and support she has the capability to succeed in life.”

Congratulations on all your hard work!
