For Parents

Parents are the most important sexuality educators in their children's lives. In acknowledgement of the importance of the parent-child relationship in the development of adolescents into mentally and physically healthy adults, PPMW offers workshops to parents on how to communicate effectively with their children about sex and sexuality.

To schedule a workshop, please contact PPMW's Education Department at education@ppmw.org.
