Dad, how do men make sperm?

Why is this so hard to talk about?

Many parents feel at a loss when they try to talk with their children about sexual development and puberty issues. We want to support parents in their role as the primary sexuality educators of their children. 

For more information about any of these programs, call or email Planned Parenthood Mid-Hudson Valley's Education Department:

What Parents Say About Our Programs

"I realized that my son and his friends knew more than I thought."

"I was a little nervous about having Planned Parenthood come to my parish to speak to young people and their parents about abstinence, but they were wonderful. They addressed very sensitive topics from a real life perspective with facts, compassion and humor. I'd invite them back again."

"It was so special to spend three evenings with my daughter. I have two other children at home and it's hard to get quality time one-on-one."

"It's easier than I thought to talk about sexuality."

"I'm so glad we finally opened the door to talk about this stuff. I didn't know how to start."
