Do you ever wonder when you should talk about sex with your children? How best to answer the question “Where do babies come from?” Do you speak about your children’s right to safety when it comes to their bodies? Do you have an open approach to discussing sex or sexuality with your children? How much is too much information? Or, do you avoid the topic altogether?
Susan Caruso has guided and supported families of young children for over 25-years and leads interactive and inspiring parent “toolboxes” each month for the Sunflower Creative Arts community. Each year, Susan addresses the topic of speaking about sex and sexuality for parents of preschool aged children.
