Parent Workshop: Navigating Conversations about Sexuality w/ Your Kids

This program is currently unavailable. Click here to view all of our current programs.

Bodies, Identities, Sexual Orientation, Relationships, and more!

Whether you like it or not, as a parent, you should be your child(ren)'s primary sexuality educator. For many young people, though, much of the information and attitudes they see/hear about sexuality comes from their peers, pop culture, and social media instead.

How can we navigate this important aspect of our child’s development and strengthen our parent-child relationship, so that “the talk” becomes more of an ongoing conversation?

Join us for an informative and supportive series of conversations and find the support, insight, and courage to be a positive influence in your child(ren)’s attitudes and values around sexuality.
