Is it Time for The Talk?
Puberty workshops for kids ages 9-12 and their parents
Most parents want to be the ones to educate their kids about sex but aren’t sure what to say or how and when to say it. Meanwhile our children are bombarded with sexual images from TV, movies, friends, music, etc. This is your chance to even the playing field. This unique 6-week workshop is designed for you and your child to attend sex education classes together. Parents hear the information presented in a relaxed environment, which helps them feel more comfortable with the topic. Children learn that their parent is the one they can turn to for factual information. Statistics demonstrate this type of parent and child sex education can significantly reduce the rate of teen pregnancy. The goal of this class is to provide factual information, while enhancing parent-child communication in a comfortable, fun, and safe environment.
