The Birds & Bees Seminar will empower parents to talk to their kids about sex in a healthy way. Mary Flo Ridley give parents the tools they need to be the best parents they can be, even in the most daunting conversations of all.
Mary Flo will give her presentation twice—once on Friday, September 27, 7-9 pm, and again on Saturday, September 28, 9-11 am. She will hold a Q&A session on Sunday, September 29, 10 am, in the sanctuary. $30 childcare reimbursement will be given to DPC members and regular attenders for their attendance on Friday or Saturday.
In 1986, Mary Flo Ridley began presenting a popular parenting seminar in the Dallas area teaching parents how to talk to their children about sex. Armed with medical research, personal stories, and humor, Mary Flo walks parents through very specific ways to answer their children’s early questions with confidence. She gives parents a simple strategy that allows them to share their values along with basic biology and develop a positive plan for introducing the subject of sex in the preschool and early elementary years.
Through her first book and DVD Series, Simple Truths with Mary Flo Ridley, and as an international speaker, Mary Flo gives parents the simple tools they need to begin these conversations. In her second book, God’s Very Good Design, parents can see this strategy unfold in a Biblical context. She is thrilled to partner with Megan Michelson to bring this message to a new generation.
Mary Flo grew up in El Paso, Texas, and graduated from SMU. She has been joyfully married to her husband, Dave, for 38 years, and they have three married children and eight grandchildren.
