September 26th, 2017 from 7-9:30 p.m.

Optimum Ed, 3850 Gaskins Road, #240, Richmond, VA 23233

[twocol_one]Wondering how you can respond to your tween’s or teen’s desire to watch the Netflix series that has swept across every middle and high school in America—13 Reasons Why?[/twocol_one][twocol_one_last]Has your child already seen 13 Reasons Why? Wondering how, when, and what to say about topics the series brings front and center like bullying, drinking, drugs, sex, and suicide?[/twocol_one_last]

“You’d better not watch that show!” isn’t the only way to respond. Parents have to tackle hard topics every day. Let’s work together to better understand and discuss these important topics with our kids!


Join us for a night of education and interaction to discuss these hard topics.  

You’ll walk away with a clear understanding of what these topics mean to our tweens and teens and how you can have meaningful dialogue with your kids about them.
