Well parents, this is uncomfortable to talk about!


Well Parents, This is uncomfortable to talk about

There was a time long, long ago, when the infamous “girly” magazine could be found stashed between a teen’s mattress.  That was uncomfortable, even startling at times, but frankly, not super scary. 

Holy cow!  Fast forward to 2021 and oh my, how much and how quickly times have changed.  A peek at a rather seemingly benign “dirty magazine” has grown exponentially into a gargantuan, highly profitable, cyber business. 

Yep, I told you it was uncomfortable.  Thinking about sexually explicit material and how easily accessible it is to the world, but especially our children, tweens and teens is frightening.  We can think and hope it will never impact our family, but the truth is, the role of pop culture and pornography does impact our kid’s development.  The first step of “getting informed” is hard, but the next in knowing what you can do is a little easier.  Parent Action for Healthy Kids has connected with an expert that will cover both and we want her to share her expertise with you in a safe and supportive space.

Parent Action for Healthy Kids invites you to join us on March 24th from 6 – 8 pm as a part of our Talk Early & Talk Often Parenting Series.  The March 24th event is FREE, and the topic is Pornography & Teens:  What Parents Need to Know!  The featured speaker is Dr. Megan Maas an Assistant Professor in Human Development & Family Studies at Michigan State University.  In our time together, Dr. Maas will help parents prepare themselves to assess and address pornography with your child; suggest multiple talking points to keep the conversation on-going; and looking at the tech environment in your home.

Please join us, March 24th from 6 – 8 pm for this FREE event.
