Ellen Friedrichs, health educator, will share helpful recommendations for what to say to your middle schooler, what you can stop worrying about, and how you can make this communication as healthy, informative, and comfortable as possible.
We will look at how to talk about everything from sex ed basics, to porn and consent. We will also cover how to talk to middle schoolers who are already sexually active (yes, they exist), as well as how to talk to who are years away from sex.
