Talking to your kids about sex is hard. And, oh so awkward.
But…important. Especially if you want your kids to grow up confident and have healthy relationships (it will save you thousands on future therapy!).
Sexologist and mom, Dr. Lanae St.John, aka, The MamaSutra, believes it’s time to shake up the status quo and normalize sex and sexuality. Dr. St.John uses “The Five Building Blocks to a Healthy Sexuality” to ensure children and adults of all ages have the best resources, support, and skills to make good decisions and grow into a happy and fulfilling sex life.
You’ll be given tools like:
- How to identify your own hurdles when it comes to discussing sex.
- How to stay ahead of today’s information overload and guide your kids to the best information to support their curiosity.
- The steps to open the door of communication with your kids and keep the eye-rolling to a minimum.
Children at any age want information when it comes to their emerging sexuality, physical, and emotional health. Dr. St.John hands you a mindful approach to integrate discussions of sexuality, relationships, decision making, and other relevant topics into everyday conversations. No matter where you are in your parenting journey… it starts with sex-positive parenting.
"Impressively informative and 'real world practical' in scope, organization and presentation, "Read Me: A Parental Primer for "The Talk" is an ideal, effective, and thoroughly 'user friendly' instruction guide and manual for parent-child discussions about sex and human relationships appropriate to every age of childhood."
~ Midwest Book Review, August 2019
"Anchored in the lived experience and as a highly trained sexologist, Lanae St.John (The MamaSutra) writes in a voice that is authentic and on target with a practical model that sets the stage for successful parent-child communication about sexuality. Dr. Lanae presents a path for parents to follow her sage advice, resulting in smarter, healthier and sexually (and emotionally) sophisticated adults from homes that thrive in sexual openness, accurate information and holistic wellness. The MamaSutra has the cred, savvy and spirit to be THAT guide for all parents looking for how, what, where, when and how come they can be that primary sex educator for their family. I highly recommend this book as a necessary ingredient for raising happy, healthy children of all ages."
