Starting the Conversation: How to Talk to You Kids about LGBTQ+ Issues

Wednesday, September 19, 2018

A guided discussion for parents and caregivers to learn how to navigate conversations about LGBTQ+ news, people and creating welcoming homes and communities for your children and their friends. Topics will include understanding terminology, using age-appropriate language, and identifying resources. Often times we hear that parents and supportive adults wish they had more tools for having conversations about diversity with their children. Join us for the opportunity to ask questions and learn terminology that young people are using, tactics for having age-appropriate conversations that promote greater understanding and inclusion and have a chance to network with community resources available for you and your family. This evening is appropriate for families with children and adolescents ages K-12 or other adult allies who interact with young people. Sponsored by Youth Outlook, the DeKalb High School Gender & Sexuality Alliance, the Clinton Rosette Middle School Safe Spot.
