Parent Ed with Megan Michelson of The Birds & Bees
Join us on Thursday, February 23, 6:30 - 8:30 PM at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church (5308 Buffalo Speedway) as we co-host an event with Presbyterian School.
Megan Michelson with The Birds & The Bees will lead a live program that encourages and equips parents to have age appropriate conversations with their young children about sex. Where do babies come from? How is that baby going to get out of there? The Birds & Bees want parents to answer these questions when their kids are asking them in order to create a foundation for future conversations. In today's sex saturated culture, the idea of "the talk" at age 13 is too late. Their goal is to replace that one talk with several smaller talks so that your kids can hear your voice and values. They want parents to be prepared and have a plan for when the questions start, because it will be sooner than you think.
The live program walks you through the six-step strategy that takes you from the early preschool years to preadolescence:
1. Creating your family message
2. Using respectful and medical vocabulary
3. The story of birth
4. Reproduction: seeds & eggs
5. Conception: "where do babies come from?"
6. Practical ways to continue the conversation
Many parents come to the program nervous and intimidated about this topic and leave feeling encouraged and empowered. For more information, please visit the Birds & Bees website at www.birds-bees.com.
