Some of your clients may have growing families and you are the first person they will come to with questions about what to say to their kids about sex, how to say it and when.

Talking about sex with kids can be a difficult thing for some parents, so you need the information to help them navigate this topic with their kids in a timely and useful way.

Early sexuality is more than just puberty. There is so much to learn about how our bodies develop and differentiate themselves, even in utero!

Most adolescent sexuality education focuses on reproduction, but what about all of the other aspects of becoming a fully-formed sexual person? You want to know about that too, right?

Everyone knows that human sexuality is a tough topic. This fact is compounded where the concept of child & adolescent sexuality is concerned. Sexologist and mom Dr. Lanae St. John (aka The Mamasutra) has worked with hundreds of parents in this area.

In this course you will learn about the physical sexual development of infants in utero through children in puberty, sex & gender variance – and how gender is more than just male and female-- and the psycho-social sexual development from early childhood through adolescence.

Sex-positive parenting is something that takes practice and work, and with everything you will learn in this course you’ll be well on your way to helping your clients become more informed about this often scary topic.

Your clients’ kids (and future kids) will have the information, support, and skills to take care of themselves, make the best decisions they can, and enjoy a happy and fulfilling sex life.

It all starts with enrolling in Child & Adolescent Sexuality!
