Ask Dad and/or Mum Parents as Key Facilitators: an Inclusive Approach to Sexual and Relationship Education on the Home Environment
Family learning is the learning between different generations that happens inside families. The term refers to the sharing of information, thoughts, feelings and experiences between parents and children. Much family learning goes on informally, however organized and planned activities can be of great help, especially on topics on which parents don’t feel confident or lack adequate knowledge.

- Short introduction on definition, goals and strategies for sex education; short account of the project; use of the Tool Kit
