Welcome! The Common Ground Speaker Series is a parent education consortium that proudly presents thought leaders in parenting, education and health at venues on the San Francisco Peninsula. Parents, faculty and staff at our 27 member schools attend Common Ground events for free. Guests not affiliated with a member school may attend for a $20 fee at the door.
Deborah Roffman is a nationally acclaimed educator and writer with over 30 years of experience working with children and adolescents. She urges parents to be the most approachable, reliable sources for our children’s sexuality education. Her advice for inviting natural, ongoing dialogs about sex is crucial to ensuring our children’s emotional health and countering the influences of a media-saturated culture. Ms. Roffman’s books include Talk to Me First: Everything You Need to Know to Become Your Kids’ “Go-To” Person About Sex and Sex and Sensibility. On March 18, Ms. Roffman will address her remarks to the parents of teens and present strategies for guiding young adults toward healthy sexual relationships
