Talking with Kids about Sex Parent Support Group

Since kids are sexual beings, THEY’RE going to have questions, and YOU’RE going to have questions about how to parent sexuality.

We live in a hypersexualized yet sex-silent culture. Chances are, your parents didn’t have open ongoing conversations with you about masturbation, body boundaries, consent, sexting, pornography, sex toys, fetishes, or protecting yourself from sexual abuse, sexual harassment, and sexual assault…and that left you to navigate it all on your own.

Wouldn’t you like to give your child more tools and skills than you had?  Where are you going to find the resources on talking with them about all this? Who would you ask?

If no one is coming to mind, don’t worry! I’ve got you covered. That’s what this is all about.

What Kind of Support Group Is This?

It’s a private safe space where you can ask a question anytime, day or night. I can offer you curated resources and advice on your situation, and you can learn how other parents have handled the same issues in their families.

The support doesn’t end there. You’ll have privileged access to my webinars and the opportunity to participate in biweekly Facebook Live sessions.

Don’t worry if you don’t have anything to ask us yet! The group experience is so rich. You’ll be reading about other parents’ experiences and our weekly discussions. You’ll see articles and videos posted that you wouldn’t otherwise come across. Haven’t thought about this stuff much? Here’s your forum. This is your portal to resources and discussions on parenting sexuality, working through our own hang ups and helping our kids with theirs.

If you’re not surrounded by a community of parents who are also actively parenting their child’s sexuality, this group will bridge that gap.

We all need to feel resourced, connected rather than isolated, supported.

Join us for just $1 this month, then $9.97 a month thereafter.  What you’ll get is:

  • Access to 24/7 support for any question you have around parenting sexuality or parenting in general. Say your kid asks you a zinger question, like “What’s 69?” Tell him you can answer that question tomorrow and post in the group. We’ll help you out with depth and breadth, the arc of the conversation, how to keep it open, what phrases to use.
  • A community of like-minded parents warmly supporting each other as we navigate these tricky waters. The families in this group care about their kids’ exposure to porn, have dealt with bouts of cyberbullying, have tried the parental control apps and software. Crowd source advice on social media privacy settings, apps to avoid, and other ever-changing technology tips.
  • Resources for getting informed and leading conversations with your kids: articles, videos, book recommendations, and more. Want a video to show your kid as a prelude to a conversation about sex or relationships? Don’t waste your time searching YouTube. Toss it up to the group! If I haven’t got the perfect resource for you already, I’ll find it for you.
  • Webinars live-streamed into the group and extended access to the recordings. No need to register. No need to search your email. Just click on “videos” and watch it at your convenience.
  • Facebook Live presentations twice a month, where I’ll host a private Q&A or give pointers on a topic that’s coming up in the group. Can’t make it? Submit a question ahead of time, and I’ll be happy to include it. Click on “videos” and watch the Q&A recording at your convenience.

Give us a try! You really have nothing to lose. Join us for just $1 and poke around a bit. The depth and breadth of conversations happening in the group will amaze you. And if it’s not quite what you hoped for, you can cancel at any time.
