Having sexual conversations, even among adults are perhaps the most challenging discourse to engage in, no wonder most parents dread “the talk” that they often don’t feel competent or confident to give their children. Don’t miss this honest and authentic conversation with Deborah Roffman, award winning sex educator and author of Talk to Me First for the strategies and confidence you need to not just have “the talk”, but to become and remain the most credible, and influential resource about sexuality and life in your children’s lives.
