Online porn is becoming a substitute for sex education for many tweens and teens. Parents can counter that trend with good communication. In this talk, Sari will discuss critical elements of sexual health education. She will model conversation starters to help you address issues like values, boundaries and consent, while understanding the curiosity and hormonal changes that are natural to this age group. Parents will leave this presentation feeling more confident about starting potentially awkward conversations with their teens about sexuality and self-esteem.
