The Birds & Bees and Beyond:

3 essential conversations to have with young children about sex and relationships



What’s your plan for teaching your young child about sex and relationships?  From teaching the facts of life to preventing sexual abuse to standing up for oneself, there’s a lot to talk about!

Come to this interactive workshop to learn

  • what conversations are developmentally appropriate
  • strategies for presenting information comfortably
  • how to teach key relationship skills

Did you know that 1 in 5 girls and 1 in 12 boys are sexually abused?  That 87% of teens say it would be much easier for them to postpone sex and avoid teen pregnancy if they were able to have more open, honest conversations about these topics with their parents?

Don’t wait until puberty to start talking; set your family up for success now by having open and skillful conversations.



Anya coaches parents to become the mentor and amazing parent they’ve always wanted to be for their kids.  By transforming and opening the communication between parents and their children, Anya helps parents have deep and connected conversations about anything.  Anya’s specialty is helping parents talk with their kids about sex, to ensure that their kids have safe and healthy sexual relationships from the start.  

She has come to this work after healing her own wounds around sexual abuse, teaching high-school science for over a decade (including the reproductive system, fielding all her student’s questions!), completing her masters coursework in Education, graduating from the Interchange Counseling Institute’s year-long training program, and starting her own family.
