Parents Talk Babies & Birth Control
Last week we shared a series of stories from parent bloggers about educating kids about babies and birth control on the Facebook page of our client AMAZE. Take a look!
- Just when we thought we had heard it all. Apparently "I HEART PANTS" is a part of a sex ed in Texas. (via Wendi Aarons of Wendi Aarons.com)
- "Explaining where babies come from to your child, but not birth control is not enough." Big thanks to Debi of The Truth About Motherhood for sharing how she has approached sex ed with with tween daughters.
- Writer, educator, speaker, and Being Black at School executive director Kelly Wickham Hurst of Mocha Momma shares about sex ed from her unique lens as a teen mom and educator.
- Jenny from The Jenny Evolution had a father who was bold enough to sit her down to talk about sex which made it so much easier when the time came to do the same with her son.
- "Even if it makes me cringe on the inside, it’s so important that my kids know I can talk about important topics with them. I want to be a good source of information and be a safe person for them to confide in." Thanks to Anne Parris from Not A Supermom for this post!
- I hope to stop freaking out internally at some point but if that doesn’t happen, that’s okay. I’m going to keep talking to her about this. Such a great post from Sili at My Mamihood (who, btw, is still waiting for her parents to have "the talk" with her).
- "Turns out, there isn’t one talk. There are many talks! It needs to be an open, ongoing conversation. Because kids need to learn way more than the definition of sex." (via Kelcey Kintner of The Mama Bird Diaries)
