Talking About Sex is Hard – Parents of Adult Children with Developmental Disabilities: Support and Information Workshop
Meeting for parents and caregivers of those with a developmental disability. Hosted by Parents of Adult Children at PHP
Talking about sex is hard! But with a few simple strategies and a little bit of practice, it is possible to talk to your kids about sexuality with more comfort and confidence. We’ll address common questions that parents have about talking with their kids about sexuality such as:
- How do I know what’s appropriate to teach and when?
- Am I supposed to bring this up? And how?
- How do I respond when my child asks me questions?
- Will talking with my child about sexuality make them more likely to have sex?
We’ll also define healthy sexuality and discuss the role of sexuality education in protecting your children from sexual abuse and assault. I’ll also offer a number of resources to support you, your child’s most important teacher, in knowing where to find medically-accurate, accessible information when you need it.
Bring your questions, your fears, and be ready to have fun as we tackle “the Talk” (which is actually a lifetime of small talks!).
