Parenting & Conversations on Reproductive Health
Dr. Kathy Nakagawa, Arizona State University, School of Social Transformation
Our roles as parents encompass caring for our children through all aspects of development, but we often falter when it comes to talking about sex and sexuality. For our daughters, in particular, having healthy attitudes about sex can promote equitable relationships, foster more positive body images, and nurture thoughtful choices regarding intimacy. Cultural and social values in our country can directly impact conversations about sex and intimacy. What happens when parents and children can’t talk about sex and sexuality? Who has access to reliable and accurate information about sex, sexuality and reproduction, and who does not? How can parents have better conversations with their children about sexuality? Join us for a FRANK Talk about parenting, sexuality and reproductive health.
