What It's About

You’re not always going to be there to guide them – but as an educator, there’s a good chance that one of your primary goals is to provide your students with the necessary tools and knowledge to make informed decisions about their lives. And when it comes to dating, it’s crucial to equip them with the right skills to navigate through the many challenges they may face.

That’s where the DateSmart program by the Stanfield Company comes in – it provides a comprehensive guide to teaching students how to date responsibly, set boundaries, and avoid trouble.

The DateSmart program focuses on imparting critical techniques to support the choice of abstinence, remaining abstinent, and avoiding sexually transmitted diseases and teen pregnancy.

Students are taught social skills and how to set dating boundaries, say no when necessary, and use clear communication to avoid sexual harassment. This program provides students with much-needed tools to enable them to make safe and healthy decisions for themselves and others in any given situation.

What You Will Learn

The DateSmart program helps students discover the most crucial behaviors related to dating in this day and age.

The program’s emphasis on clear communication and mutual respect is key to helping students develop healthy relationships. It promotes the NotSmart and DateSmart ways of setting boundaries, remaining abstinent, and saying no. With this knowledge, students can avoid the consequences of sexual harassment and other complications associated with irresponsible dating.

The program is an excellent tool for educators because it’s flexible and scalable, making it perfect for all types of classrooms. You can customize the content and delivery approach to meet the unique needs of your students, making it more effective than you ever thought possible.

The Art of Saying “No”

Students may come under social pressure or peer pressure to say “yes” to certain things that they wouldn’t normally agree to. Saying “no” is a crucial life skill that is sometimes difficult to practice.

DateSmart can teach your students how to say “no” firmly and confidently without feeling guilty or unsure. Students will learn how to stand their ground when it comes to intimate advances that go against their values and beliefs.

How to Practice Abstinence

DateSmart encourages students to practice abstinence, a responsible and safe choice that has zero risks of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) or unexpected pregnancy. Practicing abstinence can prevent heartbreaks and regrets. Students will learn the value of waiting and investing in a healthy relationship in the long run.

How to Protect Your Boundaries

The program teaches students how to value their personal boundaries and why respecting them is important. Most teenagers say that they experience peer pressure when it comes to giving up their privacy, such as sharing passwords, personal information, and intimate pictures.

The DateSmart program emphasizes that these violations are unacceptable and that every student has the right to protect their boundaries and privacy.

How Girls Can Avoid Getting Into Trouble

DateSmart also offers specific lessons that girls can benefit from. For example, girls will learn how to set boundaries that allow them to feel comfortable and safe in any situation. They will also learn how to recognize and avoid potentially dangerous situations, such as being pressured into doing something they aren’t comfortable with.

Girls will also learn about the importance of respecting themselves and their bodies, and they will be given strategies on how to deal with unwanted attention from guys.

How Guys Can Avoid Getting Into Trouble

While the program offers specific lessons for girls, guys will also learn important lessons. They will learn how to respect boundaries, communicate openly, and understand the importance of consent.

They will learn how to recognize problematic behavior in themselves and others, such as jealousy or anger issues.

Understanding the Sexes

The DateSmart program offers valuable lessons on understanding the differences between the sexes. Students will learn about the societal pressures and gender roles that can often influence relationships.

They will also learn how to avoid stereotyping and make sure their relationships are based on mutual respect and equality. By understanding these differences, students can build relationships that are based on honesty, trust, and equality.

After Completion

The DateSmart Program teaches self-awareness that ultimately leads to self-improvement. Students become aware of their strengths and weaknesses, their communication style, and how they can effectively engage with others. The more they know about themselves, the easier it is to adjust and adapt to different situations.

The DateSmart Program equips students with the knowledge and skills necessary for developing and maintaining healthy relationships.

Students learn about qualities to look for in potential partners, red flags to be aware of, and how to navigate difficult conversations in relationships. This knowledge gives them the tools to form and sustain healthy relationships, which is critical for future success.

As an educator, it’s your responsibility to provide students with the necessary resources for success. The DateSmart Program from the Stanfield Company is an excellent resource for developing and maintaining healthy relationships that last a lifetime.
