Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago

Never Fear, The Talk(s) Are Here

Project Summary

Stressing out about having that one big talk with your kids! That one where you impart all there is to know about sexuality, gender, puberty, reproductive systems, sexual health, consent and relationships? Good news, there is no one talk (it’s all the little moments that matter)! We at Ann & Robert H Lurie, Potocsnak Division of Adolescent Medicine bring you, Never Fear, The Talk(s) Are Here, real youth and their supportive adults having real (short) sex ed chats. Watch our videos for inspiration and encouragement and check out our website and social media for links to resources to expand your knowledge!

Each video will feature a young person between the ages of 5-18 having a short 1-5 min conversation with their supportive adult (parent, family member, health provider, youth group leader, teacher, etc).
