SEX and SEX and SEX and SEX!

Alright, now that we have your attention… 

In this episode we’re going to cut through all the mixed messages our culture sends out about sex and focus on giving parents practical advice on how to have an open dialogue with your kids about sex and gender. We'll focus on the three fundamentals: 

1) Tell the facts. 

2) Reassure your kids (and maybe yourself) that sexual desire is normal no matter who you’re attracted to. 

3) Learn to articulate your values but leave room for their different opinions: the ultimate desire is to keep them safe and healthy. 

And remember, to relieve the awkwardness and pressure that can accompany this topic, avoid having “the big talk.” Instead, opt for an ongoing series of developmentally appropriate talks that evolve as your children grow up. We’ll show you what that looks like and how to do it.
