Great Conversations + Opal: Body Talk for Preteens and Parents
April 19, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:30 pm on Monday, repeating until April 26, 2021
A NEW Great Conversations’ ONLINE Workshop Series
For over 25 years, Great Conversations has offered classes to preteens, teens and their families on puberty, sexuality, communication, decision-making and other important topics surrounding adolescents.
We believe that parents are their children’s prime sexuality resource and that sometimes families need and appreciate additional resources to initiate and maintain these important conversations about growing up.
Our down-to-earth approach combined with humor and clear factual information provided by health educators is focused on preteen and teen developmental space while honoring and respecting families’ traditions and beliefs.
