Kari Santos and a Teen Panel from Planned Parenthood
Parents are the primary sexuality educators of their children. It can often feel challenging to even think of how to approach having these conversations with your kids. These are very common concerns. Who better to address some of these concerns than teens themselves, who are often on the receiving end of these conversations? This is will be a rare opportunity to ask difficult questions in a safe space.
