Sex Ed. for your preschooler? YUP. That’s a thing!
Did that just make you uncomfortable. That’s ok. I think that’s normal. The thought of talking about sexual health with my kids makes me uncomfortable, too.
I’ve been spending time on Amaze.org recently, learning about how to approach the subject with my older children since they have a wealth of info and videos helping parents of 10 to 14 year olds tackle this sometimes tricky topic. So when they told me they have a 10 new videos aimed at helping parents of 4 to 9 year olds and they wanted to work with me on this sponsored post to spread the word, I excitedly said YES!
The video series, called the Parent Playlist, is 10 short videos (less than 5 minutes each). The goal is to help parents of children ages 4-9 engage in open, honest conversations about sexual health in engaging and age appropriate ways. They really want parents to be THE primary sexual educators for their kids.
Here’s one of their Parent Playlist videos about talking to young children about where babies come from:
I love how Amaze takes the weirdness out of these topics by coming at them from a very factual and science based approach, but also acknowledges that many of us probably feel awkward talking about this, and explores why we feel that way and how we can reframe that.
I chatted a bit more about it on IGTV today!
The Parent Playlist is written with the help of sexual health expert and author Deborah Roffman, and there are great resources beyond the videos when you want to dig deeper on a topic, like these conversation starters…
Amaze.org is a great, free resource for parents of kids ages 4-14. Personally, I am so thankful for them and the way they are empowering me as a parent to make these important conversations easy and effective.
