“Having the Talk“
Helping Kids Develop Healthy Relationships and Sexuality in a Highly Sexualized Tech-driven Culture.
For Parents, Grandparents, Educators and Care-givers
Living in an overtly sexualized culture with rapidly changing technology has posed new and complex challenges in teaching sexual education to children. Many parents are unaware of the full impact of these cultural shifts, and the effects it has on sexual development. Sexualized images and content can be harmful to children as this material impairs cognitive, emotional and spiritual development.
Researchers are now seeing the mounting evidence of the damaging influence that a sex-saturated culture has on us individually, our intimate relationships, our families and our communities. It is critical that parents/caregivers are equipped early as the primary sex educators for their children. A one-time talk just before puberty is insufficient. Early education and intervention can have a powerful effect in the prevention of many sexual problems including: sexual addiction, sexual dysfunction, pornography use, unhealthy sexual acting out, sexting, cybersex, and sexual violence.
