On Tuesday, April 24 at 7 p.m. in the Media Center of Royal Oak Middle School, Royal Oak Youth Assistance will be hosting the nationally recognized Talk Early & Talk Often parent workshop. The two-hour workshop is free of charge and will help parents and caregivers of middle and high school youth recognize and use opportunities to open the door for conversation and to listen and respond with greater confidence and skill.
Parents are the prime educators of their children. Continued communication at home is vital in helping unprepared youth avoid serious consequences of pregnancy, HIV and sexually transmitted diseases.
Talk Early & Talk Often has, since 2005, consistently received high praises from parents, educators and community leaders. The workshop is a state sponsored initiative, developed with support from several state agencies working in the area of teen pregnancy prevention.
Parents or caregivers may register for this workshop by calling or emailing:
Since this is not appropriate for children, child care will be provided. Please let us know this when you register.
