Can a single sex talk at home - or a handful of classes in school - be enough to guide kids toward healthy choices and sexual empowerment?
So, what's an engaged, enlightened parent to do? We want to encourage conversations with our children about bodies, gender, boundaries, consent, identity, and beyond!
But, we aren’t always sure what to say, how to say it, or when to begin.
When is the “right time” to start talking? How young is too young? What, exactly, should we be talking about at various ages?
In this talk for parents and educators, sexuality educator Rachel Lotus will discuss all of this and
more. Attendees will leave equipped with actionable steps; practical help with language; developmentally appropriate resources.
Sorry, there are no refunds on PSP Events. This talk will be most useful for parents of children in K - 8.
