***Thank you all so much for a great weekend with amazing questions and great conversations. We tried to answer all of your questions. We are sorry to have missed some. It was not intentional. You can find all of the answers to these questions and many more in our course "Not. The. Talk." Our mission is to give parents the words (through scripts, anatomy graphics, animated videos, and evidence-based audio that is also fun and engaging. We hope you will join us if you are interested in more information on this critical topic. We are here for you and want to help. There is so much great information here, if you scroll through it. Or our course is a one stop shop for all of the answers on basic to challenging conversations with kids about sex, relationships, puberty, and so much more.

We are Kristin Dickerson and Shannon Deer. We own Oh. My. Word., where we empower parents to have difficult conversations to equip their children for the journey ahead. Specifically, we teach parents to talk to their kids about sex. We use a framework - Readiness. Facts. Honesty. - to help parents assess their child's readiness, teach them the facts, and answer with honesty. We encourage parents to convey their own values to their children, so our answers to your questions will not include our values. We can include a variety of values we have heard from other parents to help you think through your own values.
No question about talking to your kids about sex, anatomy, puberty, childbirth, normal childhood sexual behaviors, concerning childhood sexual behavior, healthy relationships, etc. is off limits. We have heard it all! Note: We are not here to give adults advice on their sex life (or to be vulgar or answer vulgar questions).
Ask us anything. It will be the ultimate how to talk to my kids about sex resource!

Here is also a fun quiz you can take to see Which 90's Parent You are Like When it Comes to "The Talk." It is helpful in assessing your values as well and might be helpful in starting a conversation between partners when you have different values.
