Sex Education and Teens

Parents often ask me how to navigate educating kids about sex, intimacy, and consent. I thought I would share this podcast as something to listen to for support. They also include a great list of resources at the bottom of the write up on their website. I have concluded some of them below. Here are a list of the recommendations they outlined from the podcast:

1. Don’t wait until puberty to start talking about puberty.

2. If your teen speaks up about sex, sexuality or gender, listen, love and be humble.

3. Teens need to understand the basics of a healthy relationship.

4. Sex feels good. Don’t try to hide that from your kids.

5. Porn isn’t real life, and your kids need to hear that.

6. You may want to get backup.
