Joyful Courage for Parents of Teens
This week I am revisiting my conversation with Amy Lang from the Sex Ed for Parents of Teens Mini Summit in the spring of 2020.
Amy has been a guest on the podcast and is a super great friend of mine. She is my go to person when I have questions about my teen’s sexual development.
Amy has been a sex health educator for over 20 years and helps parents of all beliefs talk with their kids of any age about the birds and bees.
She is the author of an award-winning book, Birds and Bees and your kids– a guide to sharing your beliefs about sexuality, love, and relationship. As well as Dating Smarts– what every teen needs to know to date, relate, or wait.
Takeaways from the show:
Accepting that your kids are going to have sex
The importance of communication with your teens
Stop filtering for your kids
Broader ways of looking at sexuality
Have conversations about values
Don’t be afraid to prepare before a conversation
