Today’s Children Tomorrow’s Parents


RAPCAN tested its Positive sexual decision-making life-skills as part of the grade 8 life orientation curriculum at Lavender Hill High School in 2010 and 2011. Facilitators partnered with learners to deliver the Today’s Children, Tomorrow’s Parents manual. The TCTP practice model developed tackled issues related to adult discomfort with guiding adolescent sexual decision making and learners drawing primarily on peer group norms to inform sexual decision making. Simultaneously Dr Anik Gevers developed another rigorous model for adolescent sexual decision making known as Respect 4 U, which RAPCAN endorses as a resource to use and the TCTP model as a point of reference.
