Teen Slumber Parties
The Lowdown: Remember pre-COVID times when slumber parties were a thing that we could do? Many adults like myself have fond memories of sleepovers with friends in which we’d stay up for hours talking about alllllll kinds of stuff.
So, here’s a 2-hour virtual safer space for teens to talk about whatever is on their minds in regards to sex and relationships. Labeled a slut? Scared to talk to the person you like? Think you’re not straight but you’re not sure? Zero interest in being in any kind of relationship? Wait, there’s more than one kind of relationship?! We can cover all of these and so much more. I facilitate the discussion based on participant information gathered ahead of time. After the chat, I will pass along any resources discussed within the Slumber Party.
I offer these two options because sometimes it’s easier to talk to people who have limited background information about you, and other times it’s easier to have the support of people you regularly interact with. It’s your choice!
Wearing publicly appropriate pyjamas is highly encouraged; I certainly will be.
Please note: Due to COVID-19 delays and moving across Canada, the official police document that proves that I am safe around youth has lapsed. As soon as I am able to get a new one, this will be updated. Here’s a link to learn more about the Vulnerable Sector Police Check from the RCMP (federal Canadian police) and another for where I live, specifically: Guelph Vulnerable Sector.
Also of note: These slumber parties are a riff off of Leah Carey’s incredible Adult PJ Parties, with her explicit awareness and permission. Parents, I HIGHLY recommend you attend a party. Thanks, Leah!
