Should children attend?
Children are encouraged and welcome to attend (tickets are per individual). We will be discussing topics of early exposure to pornography & sexting; but will keep in mind that there are children in the room. Parents have said they were very glad that they brought their children with them. Part of our goal is that parents become comfortable discussing these topics with their children: Check out this article.
