Time to Have the Talk with Your Teen?

Talking to teens about sex can be intimidating, but it is vitally important for parents to talk to their teenagers in order to empower them to make healthy decisions.

Planned Parenthood Arizona is offering a free Parent & Teen Workshop to give Arizona families the tools they need to have an open and honest family dialogue about sex and sexuality. Workshop participants will have a lively and interactive session, and we will share tips for making responsible, health decision about sex. We will also discuss pregnancy and sexually transmitted infection prevention. And we will share the resources that are available from Planned Parenthood.

The workshop will be on Thursday, March 31, 2011 from 6:00 – 8:30 pm. To RSVP and obtain location information, please contact us via e-mail or by calling 520-784-5825.
