When I was a kid, it was the dreaded “talk.” It makes sense that there is a better approach: low-key conversation. Melissa Kilbride, a clinical social worker and Hill mom, will present a workshop to help parents talk to their kids about sex on Tuesday, Feb. 25, 7-9 p.m. at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, 301 A St SE.
Melissa believes passionately in the importance of educating young children about their bodies and sex. Her workshop will reinforce to parents the importance of early sexual education both as a safety issue and as a path to later healthy relationships. It will cover why it is imperative that the conversations start early and provide simple ways to approach the topic, aiming to reduce shame and discomfort.
The goal is to become an “askable” parent.
Tickets are $30; register here. See flyer below for more details. Melissa is available to give this same presentation to parenting and professional organizations or in-home for groups. See her contact info here.
