Sex Ed Goes to the Office

Sitting through a sex ed class is probably something you've never done with co-workers, though it could be offered during future lunch breaks. Mark Schuster's program, "Talking Parents, Healthy Teens," has already made its way to 13 workplaces and 569 parents. Together they discussed how to best communicate with teens about sex, including how to teach them to use a condom (with the condom-on-the-finger lesson).

Schuster began by contacting major employers in Los Angeles and most of them welcomed the idea of offering a lunchtime program. He points out that an evening class would attract few parents who need to get home after work, and notes one reason employers have been cooperative is they are paying health insurance for the kids, too. Parents that completed the eight-week program reported increased communication with their kids because of it.
