Casa de Esperanza: National Latin@ Network is proud to announce the launch of the redesigned DECIMOS NO MÁS website, an online resource available in English and Spanish that provides parents and adults with tools to help them have conversations with children and youth about healthy relationships, healthy communication, and healthy sexuality. Casa de Esperanza partnered with NO MORE to develop the NO MÁS campaign by incorporating input from youth and parents into original research funded by the Avon Foundation for Women.
Casa de Esperanza is proud to provide this resource to our community, especially given that research has shown that children want their parents to talk with them about sex, relationships, and communication. The redesigned NO MAS website provides an expansion of materials and information that dive deeper into how to prepare yourself for possibly uncomfortable or difficult conversations.
Just a couple examples of that expansion lie under the Start Talking: Healthy Communication section of the site. “Am I Too Late?” provides information to parents who are wondering whether their children are too old to talk about these important topics, or whether their nervousness to talk with them comes from somewhere else. The section also contains information that gives tips to parents who want to approach their children to talk about these topics. “How to Prepare (Part 1)” reminds parents that patience, honesty, and open listening are essential before and during conversations with their children.
Start exploring NO MAS today! It’s never too late to begin talking to children and youth about these important topics.
