WORKSHOPS FOR PARENTS
While many of us want to begin conversations with our children about sexuality, we aren't sure what to say, how to say it, or when to begin. The Talk provides attendees with guidance on all of the above, plus actionable tools, strong evidence to support their efficacy, and a space to share concerns and get answers.

Because the relationship we have with sex and sexuality- our own and generally - is a huge piece of preparing for and fostering open, honest dialogue with our kids. When we reconnect with our young selves through the lens of adulthood, we understand in a powerful way how our early experiences shape our current attitudes about sex, bodies, gender, sexuality in children, and how to talk about it all.
