Family Tree Clinic Speaker Event Wrap-up

Many thanks to Katie from Family Tree Clinic, and the 70+ parents that came out for the Parents as Sexuality Educators event on Thursday night! It was a great discussion around the kinds of conversations to have with our children about sexuality. Just a few of the important things that we discussed were:

  • All parents/guardians are sex educators.
  • The easiest way to have "the talk" is to talk early and talk often - Start talking about sexuality right at birth by labeling body parts, and to keep gradually advancing the conversation in age-appropriate ways as children get older and more mature.
  • Answer questions about sexuality with short, age-appropriate answers.
  • Books like It's Not the Stork on their own aren't enough, but they're a great place to start!

Join us at our next event in May, details to be announced soon over on our Facebook page.
