Is it time to talk to your child about sex, but the mere thought makes you uncomfortable? Are you ready to do it yourself but want the latest up-to-date information on sexual health and anatomy? Want your teen to have an open environment where they can ask questions about sex?
Make an appointment with one of our Educators at Planned Parenthood!
We're now offering Parent/Teen appointments in our Sarasota, Manatee, St. Petersburg, Lakeland, and Tampa Health Centers. Real Life: Real Talk helps parents meet the challenge of being their children's primary sexuality educators.
Recently a grandmother scheduled an appointment with one of our Educators to get information for her grandchildren. She felt this was a way she could support and contribute to the family. If children receive information from trusted adults, delivered in a non-judgmental, supportive manner, they will connect with and apply what they have learned. Research shows that teens who report having good conversations with their parents about sex are more likely to delay sex, have fewer partners, and use condoms and other birth control methods when they do have sex.
