Let’s Talk Parent Dialogue…
because our kids’ decisions about sex depend on what they know

We in GPRHE would be happy to come to a PTA meeting, a meeting of concerned parents, a meeting of friends and neighbors, in your home or your book club and discuss Talking about sex with your kids or Everything you need to know about sex education and more.

We can tailor your event to suit your needs
If you can’t find what you need on the menu below, talk to us and we will see what we can do. For larger gatherings, we are happy to provide a combination of subjects. Our programs run from one to two hours.
Our backgrounds are as parents first and foremost, and one of our main speakers is a longtime PTA activist, and member of the DeKalb County Health and PE Advisory Committee, and recently also of the CDC Panel evaluating comprehensive sex education and abstinence-only education; another of our speakers is a parent with medical, public health and research experience in reproductive health.
