the talk
 
For those who need more help and support Jen Elledge of The Talk Institute is providing a special offer to take a comprehensive sexuality education program online WITH your son or daughter. 
 
It is a private live virtual program exclusively for BHUSD families, designed for 9-12 year olds and will walk your family through "The Talk" about puberty, what sex is, and much more. 
 
Contact:  Jen Elledge jennifer@thetalkinstitute.com
Most programs ONLY provide scripts and how to's for parents to talk to their kids on their own.  Not many do it WITH you.  That is what is truly unique about this offer!  

It is two virtual sessions and is taking place Tuesday, May 11 and 18th for girls  and Wednesday May 12 and 19th for boys 6-8pm. Both parent and child attend the sessions together and they are recorded. The course fee of $129 covers 2 sessions for each parent/child pair. 
 
Along the way you'll have opportunities to play games and activities together and have access to an activity book and journal so BOTH of you can dive deeper into the course and ensure you keep talkin'!   Instead of talking at your child, you'll talk with them!   
 
This course creates an amazing opportunity to talk with your child about sex, allowing you to plug in your own family values along the way.  We all get busy, tired, and distracted by everyday to-do lists and it's easy to lose time and pass up opportunities to talk with our children. Often this requires consciously creating and even scheduling time to have these important conversations. 
 
If you are the type of parent that wants to be involved in your child’s education about sexuality, you don’t want to leave it up to school or society to teach your child about sex, you understand the importance of young people having this information in order to be sexually healthy adolescents and adults, and you want your child to be able and willing to talk to YOU about this subject, then this course is for you!

ParentEd Night: MENTAL HEALTH "Behind Happy Faces" - 12/9/20

Please click here to register in advance for this parent life-altering seminar.
 
Your child's skills to manage their mental health and address emotions are especially relevant during this pandemic era. With so many struggling, it’s a vital time to teach resilience and learn the warning signs that might signal your child needs extra help.  Our country teaches about physical health and diet from kindergarten through the rest of a person’s life. It’s time to do the same with mental health!
 
Highly coveted speaker and author, Ross Szabo  will be joining the BHUSD parent community (TK - 12th grade) on Dec. 9 at 7:00pm to discuss the stigma around mental health issues and provide hope with his charismatic style and relatable approach in teaching parents to talk more freely and increase self-efficacy.

"WE NEED TO TEACH MENTAL HEALTH THE SAME WAY THAT WE TEACH PHYSICAL HEALTH!"

—Compare mental health to physical health. We don’t only encourage people who have cancer, diabetes, heart problems or other issues to seek help and tell everyone else that they only need to go to a doctor when they have a disease. However, we do tend to tell people they should seek help for their mental health only when they’ve completely broken down. This isn’t working. Mental health isn’t having a problem; it’s how you address all of the problems in your life. When someone takes care of their physical health they eat right, workout and take care of their body. For someone to take care of their mental health they need to think about how they cope, communicate, what their relationships are like and take care of their minds.
