Talking to kids about sex is subject of library forum

The Ridgefield Library will host a program called “Birds and Bees: How to Talk to Today’s Kids About Sex” Wednesday, Jan. 16, at 7 p.m.

The program is part of the Parenting the Selfie Generation at the library.

Jennifer Gaines, a public health program specialist, will lead the discussion on talking about sex and offer tips on what to say, how to say it and when.

Gaines will touch on the following topics in her presentation: sexuality, consent, dating, sexting, healthy relationships, dealing with peers, and “hooking up.”

Parenting the #Selfie Generation is a community-wide collaboration with Ridgefield Public Schools, Ridgefield Council of PTAs, Ridgefield Library, Project Resilience, Ridgefield Youth Commission, Books on the Common, Town Vibe, and Silver Hill Hospital.
