"Make a Date" Campaign - Tell Us Your Story

October - Let's Talk MonthParents, guardians and caring adults - share your story of a time when your child asked you about the birds and the bees, and/or you had an open and honest conversation about relationships and sexuality. How did you handle it? What would've made it easier? What was great about it? Share your story as part of our #MakeaDate campaign for a chance to win an age-appropriate book about having these conversations.

Share your #MakeaDate story!

Your story may be used publicly.
The Minnesota Department of Health will choose stories about the value of having open and honest conversations about sexuality with children to be included on our Let's Talk Month webpage and social media channels in the future. If your story is chosen, a representative of our child and adolescent health program will contact you for final approval before your story is posted. If you have any questions about how your story will be used, contact
