Let's Talk Month

October is Let's Talk Month, a national public education campaign to encourage parent/child communication about sexual health. Let's Talk Month is coordinated by Advocates for Youth each year and is recognized by community organizations across the nation.

Parents are the first and most important sexual health educators in their children's lives, but not all parents are comfortable with or have the resources to discuss sexual health with their children. The important thing to remember is that sexual health education is not a onetime "talk." Rather, it is a process that involves many conversations over time. Are you a parent who is wondering how to get the conversation going? Here are some great resources to get you started.

Be You. Be 3: Smart, Strong and Safe promotes being smart - knowing your body, options and the risks of sexual behavior; being strong - standing up for yourself and how you feel; and being safe - protecting yourself from getting pregnant or getting an STI/STD.
