Participant says:
“Being able to be part of the OWL class made learning about being a safe and responsible teenager/adult an entertaining and very educational experience. I absolutely recommend joining this class just because it’s a safe environment to learn both the physical and mental part of being a growing teenager.” age 14 

 

Parents say:
I was sooooo happy my child did OWL in 4th grade. I know it felt a little bit young for the information that was presented, which made me extra glad she did it as it would have taken me years to teach her about some of these things, and I also don’t think she would have been receptive to having conversations with me about these things anyway. I thought the book was great, and I know she felt comfortable and safe with the presenters. What the school is teaching is much less comprehensive and late. I’m glad my child has been given all of that information to build upon from other sources. The facilitators did an amazing job!
 
Just a word of thanks for the important work of providing our kids with such helpful information in a safe setting. I’m very grateful. I know my child got a lot out of it. I have many friends who would be interested in future classes, 
 
I greatly appreciate the presenters for providing this class for my child. I have great confidence in what my child has gained from this, though I am only likely to learn incrementally over time what that might be explicitly from his perspective and experience.
 
I sooo much appreciated this program…There was a lot of resistance, however upon time & reflection, I am hearing appreciation from my child.

 


Our Whole Lives

  • is a series of sexuality education programs for six age groups: grades K-1, grades 4-6, grades 7-9,  grades 10-12, Young Adults and Adults. The resources are written by professional sexuality educators and provide accurate information for parents, teachers and pastors to be used in the affirming and supportive setting of our churches. Order your curriculum via UCC Resources.
  • The resources are based on the Guidelines for Comprehensive Sexuality Education produced by the National Guidelines Task Force, a group of leading health, education and sexuality professionals assembled by the Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States.
  • There is a Parent Guide to Our Whole Lives Grades K-1 and Grades 4-6 that accompanies the Our Whole Lives resource for those age levels. Our Whole Lives Grades 4-6 also uses the book, It’s Perfectly Normal, by Robie Harris.
Our Whole Lives equips participants with accurate, age-appropriate information in six subject areas: human development, relationships, personal skills, sexual behavior, sexual health, and society and culture. It provides not only facts about anatomy and human development, but helps participants to clarify their values, build interpersonal skills and understand the social, emotional and spiritual aspects of sexuality.
