Invite your preschool teacher and daycare provider! Join over 2,025 adults who have already done these workshops.
WHY ATTEND: When we start this from birth and scaffold information as they grow, your children learn that sexuality is healthy, normal and something to be celebrated!
It builds healthy sexual esteem.
It can protect them from unwanted touch, abuse, and can set them on a path of healthy sexuality.
When we name babies body parts without shame we are laying the foundation for healthy sexuality. THE EARLIER YOU START THE EASIER/BETTER IT IS!
When we give children answers to their questions about bodies and sexual behavior they see us as credible sources of information.
83% of teens report NOT talking to their parents about sex because they are afraid of their parent’s reactions.
Little girls benefit from their father’s support regarding sexual development because father’s influence:
her level of personal confidence
her body comfort
her expectations for the way she should be treated by boys/men
Research shows that children of parents who talk about sex positively and acknowledge pleasure instead of giving negative messages, are more likely to wait to have sex. Moms do the majority of the talking. WE NEED DADS! In one survey, only 38% of young women and 25% of young men said they had never gotten good info from their parents that helped them talk about sexual issues with a partner. (Kaiser Family Foundation).
You wouldn’t put your child in a pool without water wings or lessons, you wouldn’t let them cross the street without safety training so don’t let them be ignorant of how their body works, where babies come from, the foundations of consent and the reproductive basics. They will get it from the internet, peers or porn if you aren’t their source.
