Kids are learning about sex everywhere - from movies and TV, to music, magazines, the Internet and from other kids. Parents need to be a part of the conversation, but often don't know how to begin.  Living Room Talks gives you and your child a chance to learn how to talk about growing up, relationships, and avoiding STDs and too-early pregnancy.

In a comfortable setting; our educators work with parents in a "living room," and with their children in a "classroom," and then bring everyone together to share what they've learned.

Living Room Talks is a 2 1/2 hour program in which parents and their young teens can get comfortable talking with each other about growing up, sexuality and relationships, and learn the skills they need to communicate effectively with each other about behavior and values.

Planned Parenthood's skilled educators create a fun, safe space for family communication and facilitate conversations about topics that are important for young people's healthy development.

The Living Room Talks program is for boys and girls aged 12-15 and their parents/caregivers. The program is offered in a comfortable setting in Newark. Each workshop is organized so that health educators work with parents/caregivers and their children, both separately and together in the same, single evening. Food and $20.00 for transportation are provided.
