Planned Parenthood of New York City trains local parents to be Adult Role Models who lead workshops for other parents on how to talk with children and teens about sexuality. Adult Role Models reach out to fellow parents wherever they find them -- in churches, GED programs, community organizations, and schools. Adult Role Models workshops diminish the anxiety many parents feel when talking with their children about sexuality by teaching them concrete skills. Adult Role Models workshops also encourage parents to use these important conversations to communicate their own values to their children.
The Adult Role Models workshop series is fun, interactive, and free of charge.
To schedule English or Spanish workshops in Manhattan, Brooklyn, or the Bronx, please call: (212) 274-7362.
The four workshops offered by Adult Role Models are:
Workshop 1 - “Talking to Your Children about the Facts of Life”
Workshop 2 - “Opening the Lines of Communication”
Workshop 3 - “Child Development and Sexuality”
Workshop 4 - “It Takes More Than Talk”
