Description

Bringing Sex Education into the 21st Century
Presented by Cathy and Todd Adams, Zen Parenting Radio

PARENTS - It's essential that we start talking about sex, sexual assault, consent, and personal responsibility in the home. We need to start early and make it an ongoing discussion with open communication. What's happening in the world today is not being discussed in traditional sex education programs, and the expectations and responsibility of this generation is changing rapidly. This is essential information for our daughters AND sons - for their own self-understanding and the health of their future intimate relationships. Join us for a discussion about sexuality, sexual assault, and consent. This discussion is for Moms, Dads and teens - teens are encouraged to attend!
