Birds, Bees, & Beyond: A Parent/Caregiver Quarterly Meetup

January 17, 2024

Feb 1 2024 Parent Caregiver Night

Birds, Bees, & Beyond is a free event on February 1st, 5:00-6:30pm at Kenai Peninsula College: Kachemak Bay Campus in Homer. Dinner will be provided.

Because “The Talk” is never just a one-time thing, we’re planning a night specifically for you!

Parenting teenagers (and tweenagers) is, among other things, a very unique experience. Adolescence in itself is a stand-alone phase in life that lands in a gray zone between childhood and adulthood. This in-between is what we at the REC Room specialize in, and where we can lend parents and caregivers more support. Puberty, developing independence, dating for the first time – all of these life events aren’t always easy for the young person experiencing them, and parents need support, too!

Introducing: Birds, Bees, & Beyond – a Parent/Caregiver Meetup where your concerns, questions, doubts, triumphs, and networking can take place. This FREE discussion group will be facilitated by our Lead Educator, Tyler Moskios-Schlieman, and food will be provided. We all want young people to be and feel safe and happy, and according to decades of evidence, teens and young adults report that PARENTS are the most influential factor in a young person’s relationships, sexual health, and personal identity. Not peers. Not media. Parents.

Join other parents and caregivers for this quarterly workshop where we will work through real-life scenarios to answer questions you may have, such as: 

  • How can I stay informed and educated?  
  • How can I be more approachable? 
  • How can I best explain my values to my teen? 
  • How can I best address uncomfortable topics? 

This new quarterly meetup series will support those with teens in their lives to explore and address these issues, and more! Join us for the first Birds, Bees, & Beyond event Thursday, Feb 1, 5:00-6:30pm at Kachemak Bay Campus in Homer and mark your calendars for the next on April 2nd.
