How to Talk to your (LDS) Kids ABOUT SEX : Fostering Healthy Development in A sex-saturated age.
ONLINE RECORDED COURSE FOR LDS PARENTS
This course educates parents in how to shape their children's healthy sexual development and the development of sexual integrity. Sexual integrity is a product of accepting our God-given sexuality and relating to this gift in a way that creates personal strength and blesses (future) relationships. This course helps parents teach children how to navigate internal and external sexual pressures while being true to their highest values. It also addresses the tasks of each developmental stage in sexual development from birth to adulthood, as well as appropriate responses to challenging realities in the larger culture, and how to protect our children from negative forces on their sexual development.

"... As we watched and listened to the content of the class we not only had strokes of inspiration on how to talk to our children about these very important and sensitive subjects, but we also as a couple, drew closer together intimately. We could see the importance of modeling a righteous, happy, and intimate marriage to our children. Like most, we still have quite a ways to go with both our children and ourselves but through the information and insights provided to us by your class we know that we are far more likely to succeed in helping our children prepare for marriage and intimacy, and ultimately finding joy in this life and that to come.
Thank you Jennifer for your knowledge and willingness to share it with others, especially those that need it most. Thank you for how you value intimacy, marriage, and personal integrity". -- S.C. Class participant
What an an amazing talent you have of framing sex, sexuality, and sexual relationships in a positive way that empowers me and gives me hope and courage to teach my children about sex in a way that will bless and enrich their lives. Based on the things I have learned from this course I have already changed the dynamics of my conversations with my children. It isn’t always easy, but it’s always worth it.
One of the things I most appreciate about this course is that it places sexuality as an integral part of our whole being. There is no shaming and it is never about fear. It is always about love, goodness and really accepting ourselves. It places an emphasis on how integral sex/sexuality is in developing full, healthy relationships with yourself and your spouse. I love the focus on all of the good things about sex. And not just the good things, but how a well-developed sex life is a necessity in marriage. Based on the things I’ve learned from this class my kids are getting completely different messages about sex from me than I ever got from my parents. Thank you! -- K.H.H.
