Community Conversation: Talking to Your Kids About Sex, Part 2

Hilltown Families presents…

Talking to Your Kids About Sex
A Community Conversation at Cup & Top Café
Evening of Tuesday, January 29th in Florence

Hilltown Families and Cup and Top Café are presenting a series of free talks for parents with Brooke Norton, Certified Sex Educator. Continuing with this series, the second talk will continue to look at how to talk with your kids about sex in an age appropriate way.  This talk will take place on Tuesday, January  29th after hours at the café from 6:30pm-8:30pm (1 North Main Street) in Florence, MA.

Brooke would like to invite all parents to attend, regardless of their personal values about sex and sexuality. “All value systems will be honored and respected,” says Brooke. “My whole mission is just to encourage parents to start thinking about how they want to guide their children, and then to get them to start talking as well,” she added.

In the first talk in this series, some of the questions Brooke addressed included:

  • What information is appropriate for my kids’ age?
  • When is a good time to start talking with my child about sex?
  • How do I react when my child asks about something that I am not comfortable with?

Brooke will touch on these questions again and continue the conversation by address additional questions, like:

  • How do we deal with technology and the media and its influence on our kids’ views of sex?
  • How much does my kid need to know about sex?
  • How can I start the conversation?

Co-sponsored by Cup & Top Cafe.

Body image, puberty, and sexual identity issues will be addressed too.

Participants are encouraged to purchase dinner from the cafe (gluten-free & vegan options available) between 6:30-7pm.  The talk begins at 7pm.  Parents who are considering attending should be advised not to bring their children along to this parents-only event.
