Raising Sexually
Healthy Kids at Any Age:
A Toolkit for Parents

February 17
March 2

Whether in elementary, middle, or high school, helping kids think about sexuality in a positive rather than a fear-based way is essential to the development of healthy sexuality. This is especially important as our kids are exposed to our highly sexualized society at earlier and earlier ages. How can parents introduce these topics to their children at any age? How do we help them see the positive aspects of healthy sexuality and prepare them to negotiate the challenges they will face? Join author, TED Talk presenter, and nationally known sexuality educator Al Vernacchio for an evening of conversation and practical strategies about these important topics.
  • Thursday, February 17 at 7:00 p.m. This presentation is designed for parents of Middle and Upper School students.
  • Wednesday, March 2 at 7:00 p.m. This presentation is designed to parents of Lower School students.
