PSP The Talk: Sex Education 2.0 for Parents

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.

Topics include:

  • Reflections on our own sex-ed histories.
  • Which belief systems do we hope to pass on to our children?
  • Which would we rather leave behind?
  • Early and often: start talking, keep talking.
  • Progressive, social emotional sex ed: beyond biology.
  • How and when to talk about difficult, oft-avoided topics.
  • Points of entry: learn to start conversations proactively instead of waiting for questions to come.
  • Resources for parents and kids of all ages and stages.  

Cost: $30.00
Sorry, there are no refunds on PSP Events. This talk will be most useful for parents of children in K - 8. 

Rachel Lotus is a Brooklyn-based educator, writer, and mother of three. She earned her Master's in Education through the New York City Teaching Fellowship. There, in addition to her work inside the classroom, she also facilitated after school sex ed discussion groups where students traded shame, confusion, and fear for pride, knowledge, and safety. Rachel is the Founder of The Talk, and leads after-school classes for kids, talks for parents, and offers programs in schools.
