Everything Your Kids Want To Know About Sex…. And How To Tell Them
Monday, December 12
Old Stone House
336 3rd St, behind JJ Byrne Playground
Ellen Friedrichs, health educator, will share helpful recommendations for what to say to your middle schooler, what you can stop worrying about, and how you can make this communication as healthy, informative, and comfortable as possible.
We will look at how to talk about everything from sex ed basics, to porn and consent. We will also cover how to talk to middle schoolers who are already sexually active (yes, they exist), as well as how to talk to kids who are years away from sex.
Parents will walk away with concrete strategies for bringing up tricky topics without alienating their kids or backpedaling out of embarrassment.
Registration and $25 fee is required ($30 for non-PSP members). Here's the link:
