Talking with Kids about Sex in the Media




Do you want to counteract what your kids are learning about sex in the media?  How do we teach our children to respect themselves, their peers, and their partners?  In a paradoxically sex-saturated and yet sex-silent culture, how do you open these conversations?

In this interactive skill-building workshop, you’ll learn how to talk with your kids about media messages in open, ongoing, 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.
