Parent-Child Communication Program: Let's Talk

Talking to your child about sex can feel difficult, but it doesn't have to be. PPHP offers training programs for parents and caregivers on discussing sexual and reproductive health with their children. The "Let's Talk: Talking to Children About Sexuality" program aims to support parents and caregivers in their role as the primary sexuality educators for their children. The program helps parents and caregivers respond more comfortably and effectively to a variety of their children's sexual questions and behaviors. Programs can be tailored to fit any age and developmental capacity.
