For many parents, including me, talking to your kids about sex is difficult at any age. When they’re younger, you’re unsure about how much you should tell them and if it’s too early to start. When they’re older, you’re afraid that they may know more than you think, thanks to social media and friends with older siblings. But, are they learning the right things?
Join us for a virtual coffee chat with Erin Flynn, a Nurse Practitioner with Pill Club and fellow mom, on August 12, at 1:00 pm ET (10:00 am PT). Erin is a Family Nurse Practitioner with a Doctorate of Nursing Practice and Master’s Degrees in Public Health and in Nursing. She has done countless well-child and well-woman visits and had many conversations about contraception, safe sex, reproductive health, and consent.
Erin will be sharing top tips for talking to your kids about safe sex and changing bodies, including:
- Different conversations to have with your child at different ages;
- What to do when you don’t know the best way to answer and how to keep the conversation going;
- How social media affects how early kids might learn about sex;
