Talking to our kids about sex, dating, relationships, and our bodies is wildly important for their understanding of self, for their choices, and for their safety. It's also wildly uncomfortable for some of us as parents and a lot of us don't even know where to begin. Come join a therapist and parent coach for an evening to talk about the basics and what you can be doing, starting at age 4! We will serve you dinner and take care of the kids too, because you deserve it, because sex talks should always start with dinner, and because your kids don't need to know that you don't know everything about sex already.
Jeremy Dew is a licensed professional counselor who has been working with kids, families, and adults in his practice since 2009, and Amy Garcia is a parent coach who speaks and writes regularly about talking to our kids about healthy sexuality.

Rather than a literal interpretation of history, The Passion of Saint Thomas More is a meditation on More's decision to be true to his convictions and his refusal to agree to Henry VIII's demands. Described by Gramophone as “hypnotic, magical, enchanting and moving…[with] touches of pure dramatic genius,” the operatic oratorio has been performed across the US and Europe to critical acclaim.
