Workshops for Child Development

Workshops for Child DevelopmentThroughout 2011, there were 9 sessions, held at Open House, designed for Arab women on the topic of the development of the sexuality of children. These topics are pretty much shunned in the Arab community and are a cause for embarrasement. The Muntada Foundation, based in Haifa, has made it its purpose to promote greater understanding and acceptance of the strains that are involved in the sexual development of children and the possible resitance of the family to accept child sexuality. It is also the purpose of the course to gain greater insight into family dynamics with a particular emphasis on the relationship between the parents. The mothers who participated in the course urged us to organize a special course designed for their adolescent daughters.
