Talking ‘Birds and Bees’ With the Kids
If you have a child embarking on the tween/teen years, sexuality is soon likely to be a topic of conversation. Starting the conversation about sex with kids can be tough, but better they get facts than hyperbole from peers or the Internet.
To help parents know where to begin with this new topic of conversation, Cannon School is hosting nationally acclaimed sexuality educator and author or “Talk to Me First: Everything You Need to Know to Become Your Kids’ Go-To Person about Sex,” to speak to parents on the topic of how to become the primary resource for sexuality education for their children – not the media, merchandisers, entertainers, peers and popular culture.
Roffman’s presentation is scheduled for Monday, Oct. 20. Parents of elementary school-age children are invited to attend a session from 9 to 11 a.m., while parents of middle and high school-age children are invited to an evening session from 7 to 9 p.m. Roffman has taught sexuality education at the Park School in Baltimore for more than 30 years, and this spring was named one of Time Magazine’s “Sixteen Parenting Experts Worth Listening To.” Learn more about Roffman at sexandsensibility.net.
The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required. Register at cannonschool.org/lectureseries.
