For Parents

Social Health Association of Indiana is committed to Parents as PartnersTM to ensure they have the resources and support they need to communicate effectively with their children about health issues and personal decision making.

Social Health Association provides Parent Information Nights to review all aspects of what is taught in our 45-75 minute Human Growth & Development programs for grades 4, 5 and 6.  Tips for how to talk to your children about sensitive topics like puberty are also provided in the Parent Information Night sessions.  Click here to see a description of the program objectives.

All SHA programs are taught by professional Health Educators and include videos for grades 4 and 5.  (There is no 6th grade video shown in class). Parents can access and view the videos in the Parent Portal.  Please enter the password provided by your school to access the videos in the Portal.

The videos by no means cover all material that is discussed in Human Growth & Development classes or in a Parent Information Night.  Parents are strongly encouraged to attend a Parent Information session in person to best understand the program.
