Let's Talk!

October 26, 2020 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Parents want the best for their children and teens. That means helping them with homework, encouraging their hobbies, and … talking about sex and relationships.

During Let’s Talk Month each year, young people and parents are encouraged to communicate with one another about sexuality — including relationships, bodies and body image, reproduction, gender and sexual orientation, sexual behavior, and preventing pregnancy and STDs.

Teens name parents as the biggest influence on their decisions about sex. And teens who talk to their parents about sex are more likely to wait longer to have it, and use condoms and other forms of birth control when they do. It's important for parents to be direct, be specific, and talk often.

In this workshop we will give or tips on talking with teens about sex and sexual health, building strong parent-teen relationships, and setting rules that help keep teens safe and healthy.
