EP 116: Talking To Our Children About Sex and Sexuality
By Super Mamas
This week on the show we get honest. First, Paulina shares with us the anxiety and emotion she is experiencing as the birth of her daughter approaches. Hear first hand how to manage those emotions and how to be gentle with ourselves. Then, we sat down with Laura Vargas from Planned Parenthood Los Angeles to talk about sex and sexuality with our children. Laura has worked in the field of sexuality education for over 25 years and is the Senior Health Educator at Planned Parenthood Los Angeles. She answers all of our question about how to discuss get more comfortable with talking to our kids about these topics, when to start and what to say. This isn’t just about “the talk” but about being comfortable talking to our kids about this subject throughout the stages of life. Our children need trusted and informed adults to speak to these subjects throughout the various stages of their lives and Laura shares a variety of resources to help us get started. Plus, our tips and picks and our #talkreadsing moment of the week. Check out our show notes at supermamaspodcast.com for all the links to the resources and books mentioned in this episode.
