BALANGA CITY, Bataan – On Wednesday, February 7, the Bataan Parole and Probation Office (BPPO) conducted a seminar entitled “Responsible Parenting & Family Planning” at Bahay Puso (home for the aged) in Brgy. Tuyo, this City.
The BPPO family organized the event to help the couples and parents enlisted in the parole and probation program to be more responsible for a happier family life. The speakers during the seminar are PPW-II Ms. Imelda Vinzon & PPW-II Ms. Ramela Buensuceso of the Provincial Population Office. Although they tackled sensitive topics, the speakers delivered them in a light and comfortable manner.
Nowadays, many teenagers and couples who experience early, unwanted and unexpected pregnancy lack the proper knowledge and guidance on parenting skills. To reduce the number of early and unwanted pregnancy, the speakers cited several ways to have safe and protected sex as well as the different methods of contraception.
Sixty-one (61) participants including their partners and nine (9) Senior Citizens participated with enthusiasm and listened intently to the guest speakers. Their questions helped make the seminar more interesting.
