WHAT KIDS SAY

"I liked being able to talk to people about things and know they won't tell anyone."

***

"The subject matter was special, and Rachel really teaches it well. You can tell her anything, and she will be totally cool, not react, and help you feel comfortable."

***

" The Talk has made me feel more confident on many things. I've learned that it is normal to be feeling lots of things when going through puberty." 

***

"I was pretty confused about this "stuff" before. Now I know more and even feel more comfortable talking to my parents. "

***

"I love The Talk!"

***

"I feel that now my feelings are more organized, and before I pushed them aside."

***

"The Talk was a safe space where I could open up about things that I had never told anyone. I was supported when I asked questions that were embarrassing and learned a lot about my body and how to deal with situations that might come up now that I am going to middle school."

WHAT PARENTS SAY

"The Talk has been such a special experience for my 10 year old daughter. I had hoped she would come home armed with information, which she did. More importantly, and something I did not anticipate: she came home proud and empowered. Rachel catches that moment before kids are self conscious and inhibited and it’s really amazing. I highly recommend this class!"

***

"The difference you are making doing this is immeasurable. You have changed our lives with this. I’m forever grateful." 

***

"Our daughter was excited to attend The Talk, and she looked forward to each week's meeting.  She was engaged by the topics, and I think that it made her feel mature and respected to openly address issues that are of growing concern.  There are such limited outlets and sources to explore these meaningful areas of curiosity, and knowing that the group leaders were sensitive, informed, and open helped my daughter learn a lot over a short time period."

 ***

"The Talk is essential learning for people of all ages. It sparked a very important conversation in our family and amongst our friends concerning the need to thoughtfully educate our kids about sex, gender and puberty. Our child absorbed it all with great curiosity.  We will be back for another session." 

***

"Thank you so much for this. My child was absolutely loving the talk and especially you. We would love to join again."

***

"There is no doubt in my mind that Rachel has empowered and brought comfort and ease to my child during this intense time.  The almost immediate trust and safety she establishes within these groups is magical." 

***

"Thank you so much for this class.  My daughter loved it and she learned so much. I know it was a safe and nurturing environment and I feel so grateful that she was a part of it all.

I often think about the value of The Talk in new situations. I feel that she has been empowered by what she learned as well as your empathy and understanding.  To me this also means she can’t be baffled or befuddled by other kids - or anyone as she moves through this world. Knowledge is power! Especially in the way you presented it, Rachel."

***

"My 10 year old daughter loved this class so much! She looked forward to it every week! She was initially nervous before taking the class and now she can’t wait for the next session to begin. My daughter became confident and excited about all the changes her body is making. She’s equipped with knowledge and not afraid or embarrassed. She really gained a lot of confidence from this class! And she raves about Rachel! Saying, "she’s so easy to talk to, she makes you feel so comfortable, she’s such a good teacher, and she’s fun!” Thank you Rachel for creating a safe space where my daughter can be herself! What you do is truly special!"
