Birds, Bees, and #MeToo—Helping Our Kids Build Gender Equality featuring author Bonnie J. Rough
Mark your calendar for PTA’s next General Membership Meeting (open to everyone, no membership required) Tuesday, January, 15, 6:30-8:00 PM. Guest Speaker Bonnie J. Rough, author of Beyond Birds and Bees: Bringing Home a New Message to Our Kids About Sex, Love, and Equality, will share the practical lessons she learned as a parent and journalist when she took a close look at the world-famous Dutch approach to sex education, instrumental in producing one of the most sexually healthy and gender-equal societies on the globe. With immediate takeaways for PreK-5th families and time for sharing and questions, this event will show how we can make the most of—and enjoy—life’s many opportunities to change the conversation with our kids as we equip them to build a more equitable and inclusive future.
