Description

Parents of teenagers and young adults have enormous catching up to do to understand how sexting, internet porn, TikTok, and more have shaped sex for young people.

Too often, parents wear blinders when it comes to the sex lives of their children. They hear the statistics—how 80% of college students have engaged in rough sex or how one in four teens have sent or received a sext—and think, “Not my kid.”

Yes, Your Kid is the reality check parents need about what sex is like today—so they can better educate and support their tweens, teens, and college students. 

Combining insights from cutting-edge research, conversations with real students, and on-the-ground legal experience, Yes, Your Kid provides:
  • An overview of key topics in sexuality, from communication and consent to pornography and rough sex, describing how things have changed
  • Real-world legal stories illustrating today’s consensual sex pitfalls and clear tips for how to help your child avoid them
  • Age-appropriate tools to talk with tweens and teens about bodies, puberty, technology, birth control, and consent
  • Concrete advice parents can share directly with their children so that—if and when their children become sexually active with partners—they are more likely to have safer, consensual sex
  • Inclusive sexuality education tips for parents of young people on the autism spectrum

Authoritative, supportive, sex-positive, and facts-forward, Yes, Your Kid provides parents with the frank, accurate information they and their children need to safely navigate today’s sexual landscape.
