Birds & Bees. This is a conversation so many of us put off. Perhaps, it’s the uncomfortable memories we have of having an awkward conversation with our parents, or maybe it’s a conversation our parents never even had with us. However, this is the single most important conversation that we should be having with our kids. How and when we should be having these conversations? How do we keep our kids safe online? What is “normal” in sexual development? Amy Lang, Parenting & Sexuality Educator, breaks it all down for us, providing strategies and resources to help make this conversation a basis for further open communication.
