’s #MoreInfoLessWeird: Because Hello, Everyone Goes Through Puberty!

OK, so seriously, what is the deal with all the awkwardness around talking to kids about puberty and sex ed? We chalk it up to a lack of communicative experience (because many of our parents avoided this topic like the plague) and also just not always knowing what to say.

And this is why we’re thrilled to be working with AMAZE. AMAZE is a non-profit collaboration between experts in the field of sex ed -- Advocates for Youth, Answer, and Youth Tech Health -- to create engaging, age-appropriate sex ed videos for 10-14 year olds. And we love that the cover not just the biological mechanics of puberty, but also the more complex stuff like gender identity, relationships, and bullying. AMAZE wants to help empower parents to be the primary sexuality educators of their kids and they want the experience to be all about #MoreInfoLessWeird!

To kick off the launch of AMAZE and #MoreInfoLessWeird we engaged a team of influencers to share about AMAZE in the context of their puberty/sex ed conversations (or lack thereof!) with their kids. 

We’re also in the middle of a series of fantastic educational Twitter chats with MomsRising about how to reduce the awkward around puberty/sex-related conversations with your kids. For the latest AMAZE videos, news, and great curated content related to sex ed, join us at the AMAZE Facebook page.
