Are you uncomfortable having “the talk” with your teen? Are you unsure how to answer when your little one asks where babies come from? Do you have questions about communicating with young people about sexuality? We’re here to help!
As a parent or caregiver, you recognize that talking to youth about sexuality is challenging and crucial. Research shows that youth who receive accurate and timely information from their parents about sexuality and sexual health are more likely to delay sex. They are also more likely to protect themselves from unplanned pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections when they do become sexually active. That’s why we offer information and resources to help you start “The Talk” and keep the conversation going, whether your children are in elementary school, middle school, high school, or beyond.
