A national poll, "Let’s Talk: Are Parents Tackling Crucial Conversations about Sex?" shows that parents talk to their kids about a wide range of sexuality-related topics, including relationships (92 percent) and their own values about when sex should or should not take place (87 percent).
This new finding underscores the importance of October’s Let’s Talk Month, which encourages parents to talk to their children about sex and sexual health. As part of Let’s Talk Month, Planned Parenthood Mid-Hudson Valley will be hosting free parenting workshops on how to talk about sexting and birth control options at the Port Jervis Library on October 20th 6:30-8:30 PM, 138 Pike St., Port Jervis, NY and October 25th 6:30-8:00 PM at the Newburgh Armory Unity Center, 312-393 S. William St., Newburgh, NY. Call Planned Parenthood Mid-Hudson Valley’s Education Office at 845-838-1200 ext. 103 to reserve your seat.
