Talking to Kids about Sex


I don’t know about you, but everytime I try to have “the big talk” with my girls about SEX, they roll their eyes and tell me “they know.” After all, they  have Health in school. But what do they REALLY know? Have you ever, for once, called your child’s Health teacher to find out what they’re teaching? All you have to do is turn on the TV or the radio: our kids today are bombarded with sexual images — many of which only help to breed misconceptions.

Which is why we at Rockland Magazine are so excited to host Debra Haffner, author of Beyond the Big Talk: Every Parent’s Guide to Raising Sexually Healthy Teens at the Nyack Center on November 8th at 7 p.m. Admission is free, though if you want free childcare, you should register at Real Life. Real Talk. our partner in the event. (Not to mention we have GREAT goodie bags!)  It promises to be an interesting and informative evening. Hope to see you there!
