NEW Parents CEOP Guide #AskTheAwkward


CEOP are promoting the recent launch of #AskTheAwkward, their brand new resource for parents and carers of secondary-aged children.

#AskTheAwkward aims to help parents and carers have regular conversations with their children about online relationships and more. The resource includes three short films created in a social experiment style, with real parents and their children to capture their reactions to a range of questions.

What else is included in #AskTheAwkward?

A parent and carers introduction to #AskingTheAwkward: Young people want their parents and carers to have everyday conversations with them about relationships. They have produced this introduction for parents and carers on how to start having those awkward conversations with confidence.

A set of nine help sheets: The help sheets give essential information on nine key topics, to help parents and carers understand more about the themes raised in the films. They also provide links to further information and conversation starters on each topic.

Please help spread the message!

CEOP will be posting about #AskTheAwkward on their social media channels over the next three weeks. To help support parents and carers to #AskTheAwkward, please like and share the posts. CEOP will be promoting #AskTheAwkward on their Facebook (@ClickCEOP) and Twitter (CEOPUK) channels.

If you work directly with parents and carers, why not also deliver an independent #AskTheAwkward parents and carers workshop using our 
Facilitators Guide?

Workshops are a great way to introduce parents and carers to topics which they may find ‘awkward’. The facilitator's guide has all the information and resources you need to deliver one.  it is recommended running a parent and carers workshop if:

  • you are a parent and carer-focused organisation.
  • your organisation, school or college has experience of running parent and carer workshops.
  • you have staff in your organisation who are confident in facilitating groups of adults with differing needs.
Read the new blog post for more information on the facilitator's guide.
You can keep up to date with the latest news from the CEOP Education team by following them on Facebook and Twitter. If you have any questions or feedback about the resources, get in touch with them at ceopeducation@nca.gov.uk.
