Talk with Your Kids Timeline

Keep your children safe + healthy. . . talk with them about their health and relationships!

As a parent, you want to help your kids stay safe and healthy. All kids learn about topics related to their bodies, health and relationships. Make sure they learn it from you first. When they hear it from you in the context of your love for them, and your values and experiences, it makes a difference. Talk with your kids openly, honestly and often. Let them know that they can go to you for help and information, and remind them that you are there to share resources and provide support.
