I know I did not meet your deadline for responding; however, I am interested in knowing what you came up with. I feel that the students and parents need to have separate teaching sessions. I have presented information about growth and development to the parent's only. From this presentation you could start to develop a parent advisory committee. I see students asking less questions as they get older. I have had then answer pointed yet open ended questions at the end of class on paper; such as, what is your greatest concern about growing up? These questions can be compiled and address with the entire class not using names. We recently had an assemble on Drug Use. An undercover narcotics agent gave the students all the info about what drugs do to you. This was well received. Anxious to hear from you.
