Parent Action for Healthy Kids announces the 2016 Talk Early & Talk Often parent workshop schedule. This two-hour workshop will help Michigan parents and other supportive adults learn effective ways to keep the door open to conversations with teens about sex.

The workshop was great. I was taught how to ask a questions and how to answer my teen's questions.

Talk Early & Talk Often workshops have reached thousands of parents and drawn rave reviews. This nationally recognized parent education program is aimed at helping parents of middle and high school youth talk with their child about sexuality.

In the workshop parents learn about ways to open the door to conversation; recognize and use teachable moments to communicate important facts and values; practice answering difficult questions; listen and respond with greater confidence and skill.

Parents are the primary sexuality educators of their children. Continued communication at home is vital in helping our young people avoid sexual relationships they are not yet prepared for that may have serious consequences including pregnancy, HIV and sexually transmitted infections. On-going, age-appropriate conversations about relationships and intimacy are most effective when they begin early in a child’s life and continue through late adolescence.

There is no charge to attend, however you must register in advance. Visit http://www.ParentActionforHealthyKids.org for registration information.
