Talking to your kids and teens about sex and relationships can be a awkward sometimes – but it doesn’t have to be. Planned Parenthood is here to provide the tools and resources you need to have open and honest communication with your children about staying safe, healthy and strong.
At Planned Parenthood, we believe parents, guardians, and other caregivers should be the primary sexuality educators for their children. Talking to children of all ages about sex, sexuality, and relationships is important to ensure that young people have the information they need to keep themselves safe and healthy. Additionally, we want young people to grow up with positive attitudes about sexuality in order to develop into sexually healthy adults.
Parent and Caregiver Programs
Need help having these conversations? Our Let’s Talk workshops and programs are designed to equip parents and caregivers with the knowledge and tools to have honest, medically accurate and age-appropriate conversations with youth of any age. We provide parent and caregiver education in a variety of settings, including community organizations, community centers and schools. All workshops and programs are offered in English or Spanish.
