Reminder: MVLA Parent Ed (4/19) Creating a Foundation for a Healthy Relationship with Sexuality OR…Your Kids Are Watching Porn: Here’s How to Talk About It
Just a reminder...please note that this event will not be livestreamed or recorded.

Join us for an evening with Shafia Zaloom - author of Sex, Teens, and Everything in Between  
Creating a Foundation for a Healthy Relationship with Sexuality 

OR…Your Kids Are Watching Porn: Here’s How to Talk About It

Tuesday, April 19, 2022 - 7:00 - 9:00pm | LAHS Eagle Theater  201 Almond Avenue


According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, adolescents are exposed to 14,000 references to sexuality per year.  Do those references communicate healthy sexuality that is safe, responsible, pleasurable and grounded in authentic connection? Or do they communicate negative gender roles and dynamics and emphasize performance sex?


If you're not talking to your kids about sex, you're the only one not talking to your kids about sex.  Join us for a conversation on how to approach these challenging and courageous  conversations. Learn how to discuss safe sexuality practices, the importance of consent, and the value of relationships grounded in authentic connection through the conscious practice of care and dignity


Shafia Zaloom, veteran sex educator and author of the newly released book, Sex, Teens, & Everything in Between, will guide us toward a deeper understanding of how to encourage our children to embrace a healthier, more joyful, and responsible understanding of sexuality.


Audience:  Parents, Teachers and Counselors of 6 - 12 Grades

Register:  Register for this free event (In-person at LAHS Eagle Theater)
