An approachable, sex-positive resource on how to talk to your kids about sex . . . and keep the communication going beyond "The Talk."
You want your kids to make healthy choices, especially when it comes to sex.
But when the time comes, you find yourself tongue-tied and dodging hard conversations.
With this parent's guide to proactive sex education for teens, learn how you can become your kid's go-to resource for accurate sex information-instead of the internet and media.
Life coach and public health expert Andrea Brand makes seemingly difficult and uncomfortable topics less intimidating with features like:
- what you need to know about your child's (lack of) sex education,
- a "pause, ponder, and proceed" method for productive conversations,
- parental challenges to get in touch with your values about sex,
- and tips for organizing a secular sex-education group in your community.
Delivered with frankness, wit, and inclusivity, Stop Sweating & Start Talking pours support and encouragement on parents to help them explore and overcome what's preventing them from opening up to their kids.
Go beyond "the birds and the bees" to start-and continue-the important conversations your kids need, want, and deserve.
"Conversations about sex with our kids are often challenging, but this book makes it so much easier to address this vital topic with grace and humor." -Judy Norsigian, cofounder of Our Bodies, Ourselves
