Parent Talk Workshops
Our Parent Talk workshops create a safe space for parents to learn how to make intentional and deliberate decisions about their family’s approach to sexual health and development. This helps establish positive common language, attitudes, and communication patterns for a lifetime.
Parent Talk: Body Basics - Starting Conversations Early
For parents/trusted adults of pre-school aged children
All through toddlerhood and early childhood we are educating our kids about sexual health - we just don’t know we are doing it! Making intentional and deliberate decisions about your family’s approach to sexual health and development from the very beginning can establish positive common language, attitudes, and communication patterns for a lifetime.
Parent Talk: Being an Askable Adult
For parents/trusted adults of children ages 10-15 years old
This interactive workshop helps parents explore the why, what, when, and how of talking with young people about sexual health. The goal is to equip and encourage parents to become “Askable Adults” so that they may confidently engage their children in conversations about sexual health and relationships. Printed resources will be available to take home.
Parent Talk: TechSex - Navigating the New World of Sexuality with your Teen
For parents/trusted adults of children in middle or high school
Join us for a thought-provoking discussion about the sexuality and dating culture of teenage digital natives. Talking points will include the impact of social media and pornography on relationships, and how parents and trusted adults can engage their children in open and honest conversations. Effective communication is a protective factor that can help prepare teens to make informed, safe, and healthy decisions in the future, especially as students are preparing for adult life.
Parent Talk: Healthy Behaviors, Healthy Relationships for Students with Special Needs
For parents/trusted adults of students with various special learning needs and challenges
This workshop focuses on how to talk to children with intellectual disabilities about friendships, personal boundaries, social media, sexual health, and safety. Our goal is to equip and encourage parents to confidently help their children develop healthy behaviors and relationships. We will share tips, strategies, and insights to use with your kids immediately, and into the future.
