2019-2020 – Updated Program Options!
Research shows that your child WANTS you to talk to them about sex, love, dating, and other issues – but where to start?
For 30 years, Family Honor has provided a family-centered, Catholic approach to chastity education through our parent-child programs, all designed to help you ‘jump-start’ those important conversations (or respond to challenging questions!)
We provide a unique opportunity for you and your teen to come together PLUS a common language for communication.
Check out our programs below, then contact us to find out how to bring one to your area: 803.929.0858 or firstname.lastname@example.org
