Do you wonder what to say to your kids about puberty, relationships, dating and sexuality? Many parents feel the same way and are unsure of how or when to start these important conversations with their kids.
Crouse Hospital and Real Life. Real Talk. are offering parents and educators the opportunity to learn more during an interactive evening that will give you tips and insight from the experts for approaching these topics with your children.
Join us Thursday, May 5, 6:30 to 8 p.m., to learn about child development, age-appropriate lessons and how to address parental concerns and fears. This free, informative program will be hosted by Crouse Hospital’s Chief Medical Officer Ron Stahl, MD, and Crystal Collette, manager of Real Life. Real Talk. The event will be held in the Marley Education Center, 765 Irving Ave. Free parking is available in the Marley Education Center and Crouse Hospital parking garages. For more information, or to pre-register, call 315/472-2464. Since the program is for adults only, no childcare will be available.
Real Life. Real Talk. is a national program that was developed to help parents open a dialogue about healthy sexuality. Crouse is the first hospital to support this program and is one of the original Central New York community partners to participate in the program. Real Life. Real Talk. began in the Syracuse area in 2008 and hopes to positively change the social climate in communities by creating more open, honest and balanced talk about sexuality and health.
