Maybe you didn’t get the whole conversation

from your OWN parents.

 

Maybe you worry your kids are more tech-savvy than you….

 

Maybe you want to be having “The Talk”, but just don’t know how….

 

Let  me use my  two decades of experience  working with t/weens to give you the information you need to connect with your child/ren & help them make informed decisions and  have  the  tools  to go at sexuality, growing up technology and relationships with a sense of confidence and  seriousness - having fun along the way,  while doing as little harm  to themselves and their peers as possible.

Words like “Media”, "Privacy", “Safety”, “Porn” and even “Sex” have different meanings than they did a generation ago...  

 

“Friend” is now a verb.

 

“Oral” is now a noun.

 

The adjectives around identity seem limitless...

  •  

- Your child is likely already engaged in some form of screen use.*

- If your kid is over 13, it is probably social media.*-

- Somewhere around 300,000 of you may become grandparents before your child graduates from high school.*
