Mindful Parent’s Guide to Teaching Kids Healthy Sexuality

What kids need to know–at each age and stage–to keep them safe and support who they are becoming

Maybe you have a younger child and you don’t know how to have “The Talk” about how babies are made.

Maybe you have an older child and you don’t know how and when to explain all the different parts of human sexuality (like puberty, periods, rape, porn, masturbation, sexually transmitted infections, consent, online safety, nudes, sexting, gender identity and sexual orientation, etc). 

Maybe the whole topic of sex brings up your own feelings, embarrassment and childhood baggage, and you feel unprepared to have the conversations you feel like you should be having with your child.

You want to be the person your kids come to with questions about sex. You want to be able to have open conversations, in a positive, shame- and guilt-free way, and you also want to pass your values on to your kids. 

But now kids are growing up in a much more complicated world, where they get “too much, too soon”. You’re not sure how much information to give them or even how to educate yourself.

If this is you, you are not alone. Lots of parents feel uncomfortable or unprepared for this role.

So we gathered together some of the top health education and parenting experts, so they can share with you how to simply and easily teach kids about healthy sexuality, trust, consent, relationships, and all the other topics you want your kids to know about to keep them safe and help them make healthy choices.
