What personal or professional insights have you gained from attending this training?
  • Instead of preaching abstinence and don’t have sex before marriage, tell them you want to prepare them to have great sex with their future spouse.
  • I really liked the framework that you gave for educating our children—great sex verses the rules approach.
  • How to use the medical perspective to “sell” intimacy to our kids.
How would you describe the impact this training could have on a community?
  • Eye-opening. Life Changing for this current generation that is so at risk and misled.
  • Huge! Need to get this out!
  • It is so needed—you have such great info that so many parents would love to hear and need to hear.
  • Very effective, helpful, lots of facts and knowledge
What additional concepts/topics would be of interest to you in the future?
  • A list of books you would recommend reading to our kids at various ages on this topic.
  • I would like to have the rest of your information, it was too short! I will sign up for a class if you teach it.
  • More time to discuss dating do’s and don’ts long term and the impact of being sexually active early on.


"This parent presentation gave parents the opportunity to see why the public schools in our state approach sexual health the way they do, and it educated parents about the concern of teen sexual activity.  The professional experience and wealth of knowledge Talli brings to the presentation helps the parents understand the magnitude of the issue and the depth and detail that our county has given to selecting the best program possible for our students."

"I want to thank you again for speaking at Piney Grove this week.  It was another great talk that opened the eyes of those parents who attended.  As a few of the parents arrived, they told me that "they had to leave before 8:30". However, I noticed that they stayed until you finished at 8:45pm.  Everyone was totally engrossed in your presentation.  Although sex is more often than not, an uncomfortable subject for parents to comprehend in context with their own children, you provided them with valuable insight that will help them deal with those situations that do arise as well as what to say to kids to avoid problems before they become reality.  You are an excellent speaker and give a wonderful presentation!"



"Talli, today I learned a lot from you. I was so motivated with your strategies that I began to apply them as soon as I walked back into the classroom. Giving a critical thinking question back in response to a child really works. Presentation is everything and I really wished we could have had the entire day to learn from you. Having teens of your own to deal with makes a difference in the projection of what you are teaching. Please come back and update us again in the future. I am sure that the other Floyd County school teacher feel the same way."
