GENEVA – Fox Valley Presbyterian Church will host a workshop for parents called “The Informed and Equipped Parent: Teaching Teens to Make Healthy Choices” on April 19.

The workshop will take place from 7 to 9:30 p.m. at the church, 227 East Side Drive, Geneva.

The free parenting workshop will provide parents with an overview of the consequences of sexual activity, including up-to-date information on STDs, teen pregnancy and consequences.

The workshop also will take a look at the world from a teen’s perspective while cataloging the pressures teens face from media and their peers. 

The workshop should help inform parents on how to communicate with their child about the things that will be brought up as the teen moves through adolescence and into adulthood. 

Attendees will also leave with helpful resources, including a free booklet.
