At first we thought our students wouldn’t understand the DateSmart approach… However, before returning the product, we showed it to them and they loved it…and learned from it!
DateSmart 1 teaches skills necessary to survive in a modern dating world where sex without commitment is frequently practiced. It provides students with tips on how to respond to common pick-up lines as well as how to refuse to have sex with someone in spite of their raging hormones. It provides students with techniques to apply to real-world experiences they will probably encounter, if not now, in the future. The program also asks students to consider their boundaries and presents ways to protect those limits.
The child who is ‘left behind’ most is the one who leaves school without transition readiness.
