As caring adults in the lives of young children, we have tremendous responsibility and opportunity to foster healthy attitudes around sexuality. We will discuss how, when, and why to teach 3-7 year olds about genital anatomy, healthy touch & consent, gender roles and orientation, and how babies begin. Learn about resources available to further educate yourself and your children including Our Whole Lives Sexuality Education Curriculum, American Sexual Health Association, and age-appropriate reading materials.
