Parent coaching sessions/ PTA lectures

for Parents of Kids 8-18

Help you to understand  why and when it is  important to have conversations with your children around topics such  as  Internet  safety,  predator  manipulation,  sexuality  (in general)  and  porn (specifically).  I also provide information,  tips  and  tools  to  help  you navigate these conversations effectively  and  with confidence so  you  can  help  your  children  make   healthy choices  as they discover themselves and interact with the world.

Parents of tween and teen boys! Join Amy Lang and me

for a primer around the statistical reality of porn and our kids.

 

Let us tell you:

•What your kid and his friends are experiencing

•Why, as parents, we need to step in

•How to set rules and start conversations

You’ve started the talks about their changing bodies...

…...so, what happens next?

 

Parents of boys aged 11-14, join me for a talk about the talks after the talks.

 

•The statistical reality around tween/teen sexual behavior

•What your kids are NOT going to learn in school

•Tips and tools so you can start these important conversations
