35: How to Have Productive Convos About Sex with Anya Manes

In this episode, I sat down with Parent Coach and host of the annual Talking To Kids About Sex Interview Series. We had an informative conversation where we shared lots of personal stories. I think you’ll find it extremely helpful as you navigate these sometimes challenging convos around sex with your kiddos.

Topics covered:

  • Rape culture vs. consent culture
  • Porn and technology
  • What age you begin the birds and the bees convos
  • Open communication with your kids
  • Preventing your child from becoming the playground “sex-splainer”
  • Leaning into this difficult conversation and more!

As always, thanks for listening, and be sure and head over to Facebook and you can join my free group Mastermind Parenting Community, where we post tips and tools and do pop up Live conversations where I do extra teaching and coaching to support you in helping your strong-willed children so that they can FEEL better and DO better.
