Topic: Family is an important part of our lives, but it is important that children understand and respect that there are different types of family structures (nuclear, blended, same-sex families, single parents, fostering and adopted families) and that our family should give us stability, support and make us feel loved.


This lesson focuses on the different types of family structures and reinforces the importance of healthy family relationships, particularly for health and mental wellbeing. This lesson also helps learners identify negative aspects of family relationships, and who they talk to or get support from if they feel like their family relationships are harmful or making them feel worried. This lesson is perfect to use top open up conversations around LGBT+ or to use during LGBT+ month.
