    Parents play a very important role in whether their teenagers become pregnant or cause a pregnancy.  talk early talk often logo Talk Early & Talk Often is a grassroots effort to give parents of middle school and high school students the tools they need to talk to their children about the important issue of sexuality.

    Parents are the primary sex educators of their children. When given the information and tools, they can be instrumental in providing critical messages to their children that can help them abstain from sexual intercourse and avoid HIV, sexually transmitted diseases, and early pregnancy.

The workshops are offered year-round at no charge to parent groups in schools, communities and churches across the state.
