Adolescence is a time of change and self-discovery. A time when our physical development occurs, tossing us (ready or not) into adulthood and sexual maturity. So why is it so difficult to have a conversation about sex, especially when it’s time to have “The Talk” with our children?  

As parents or caregivers, it’s important to lay the foundation for open and honest communication around sex and other topics by having age-appropriate conversations with our children. To do this effectively, it’s critical to educate yourself with accurate information.  Your kids are searching for answers. Will they get them from you? Are you ready to assist your child on their journey? Are you armed with the right information? Are you comfortable enough to have “The Talk”? 

Insight and more, can help you get started with a variety of presentations and workshops that can help you navigate through this journey of adolescence.

ADOLESCENT HUMAN SEXUALITY EDUCATION

Infants Thru Pre-Teens

From as early as infancy, kids are curious about their bodies and the differences between girls and boys. This presentation is designed to prepare parents to have age-appropriate conversations about sex with their children. Information provided will assist you in determining when and how to have the discussion as well as how to evolve the conversation as your child grows into a teenager.      

  • Where do babies come from?  
  • Why are boys different than girls?  
  • Why do you have hair there? 

These and other related questions, no matter how uncomfortable they might make you feel, need to be addressed to foster a healthy and open dialogue with your child. It’s important that your child is comfortable asking questions and sharing thoughts about sexuality.
