Let’s Talk Month is a national public education campaign celebrated in October and coordinated by Advocates for Youth. Let’s Talk Month is an opportunity for community agencies, religious institutions, businesses, schools, media, parent groups and health providers to plan programs and activities which encourage parent/child communication about sexuality.
- Parents are the best sexuality educators for their children.
- Parents want to be good sex educators, but may not always understand how to do the job well.
- Children want sex education from their parents or legal guardians.
- You can be an “askable” parent, a caring parent, and a wise counselor.
Providing children and youth with accurate, reliable sex education is an important responsibility. Studies reveal that most kids
prefer learning about sex from their parents, but many parents are uncomfortable with this particular responsibility and need
support and encouragement to take it on.
