"Sex-Positive Parenting: Strategies for Raising Sexually Healthy Children", by Melissa Pintor Carnagey, LBSW
Learn why a sex-positive parenting approach that focuses on preparation versus prevention is most effective in raising emerging adults who can enjoy healthy and safer sex lives. This talk explains how to create a culture within the home of early and ongoing micro-lessons that build the foundations for a child’s overall sexual health and safety in areas of consent, body autonomy, gender, sexuality, pleasure, sex and media literacy (specifically porn and social media safety). Get ready to shake the shame and trash taboos around having “the sex talks” with the children in your life.
