Sharon Speaks! Events
We are pleased to be able to offer two of the Sharon Speaks! events online
Parental Self-Care during the Pandemic
Each one of us is struggling with the new situation we are in. We are all scrambling to keep up with our jobs, our homes, our children's learning templates, etc.
In the midst of all this, we need to remember to take care of ourselves.

How to talk about sexuality with your children
Talking to your children about sex is something most parents dread (Where do I begin? What information is age appropriate? How can I make this experience less awkward?).
Meg will help you to recognize when to have this conversation and how to navigate questions you may face during your talk with your child.
By providing you with some quick tips and facts, you will be more confident and comfortable with the subject matter and you will be able to provide your child with the information and self-confidence to make healthy decisions for the rest of their lives.
