Whether your have
infants, toddlers, young children, tweens or teens, many of these messages
provided from the world around them. These messages,
especially those about your attitudes, values and beliefs are best
coming from you!

with Your Children
When it comes to sharing messages and information with children of
any age, you can take advantage of teachable
moments—daily opportunities that occur when you are together. Yet,
many parents aren't sure how to react when caught off-guard by a child's
curiosity about a sexuality-related topic, when to talk and what to say,
how to handle sexuality-related scenarios, or how to identify and share
messages and values about sexuality without the embarrassment.
