Making Sensitive Subjects Comfortable
The mission of Sensitive Solutions is to provide health education and facilitate conversations between parent and child about sensitive subjects and health topics based on family’s values in a private setting. Sensitive Solutions fosters learning and breaking down communication barriers between child/teen and parent/caregiver by education with children/teens aged 4th grade to 8th to create a safe and calm environment that allows sharing and active listening. The goal is for kids to seek guidance from their parents as they navigate through adolescence.
