Show Notes

Does talking about sex with your kids make you uncomfortable? Do you know what to do if you find out your tween or teen has been looking at porn? You’re not alone. My guest today, Amy Lang, is ready to help!

Amy has been a sexual health educator for over 25 years. Amy’s books, website, and podcast show parents that talking about sexuality doesn’t need to be totally uncomfortable and can actually be fun. She helps parents become their kid’s go-to birds and bees resource. We talk about what our teens and tweens need to know about sex and porn. You’ll find this episode highly engaging and ready to talk about the birds and bees. Let’s dive in!
