Parent Circles

Education for adults and the young people they care about.

Planned Parenthood of Greater Ohio is excited to offer Parent Circles – a program designed to give caring adults and young people the tools they need to have healthy discussions about sex and sexuality.

Parent Circles is designed to provide comprehensive sex education while creating safe environments for caring adults and teens to discuss topics such as gender, sexual decision making, relationships, and reproduction. Participants will gain a better understanding of these ideas and will be empowered with information and activities to continue the conversation at home.

Parent Circles offers the tools for everyone to speak openly and comfortably about sex and sexuality with their trusted adults or children.

The Parent Circles program contains one or two-hour classes focusing on puberty and development, reproduction, safe sex and sexually transmitted infections (STIs), gender and gender expression, plus tools and tips for communicating effectively with teens. These classes will take place virtually via Zoom. When you register, a Planned Parenthood Community Health Educator will be in contact with you to determine which sessions you should attend.
