Talking about “the birds and the bees” with your kids has never been easy for any generation, but it has also never been as important to do as it is today.
If you don’t broach the subject of sex with your kids, the Internet will. In the Internet version, the birds and the bees have an orgy, and they record it. Then one of the birds posts the video on an interspecies revenge porn site and, as a result, one of the bees can’t get into the college of her choice. In other words, your kids are learning about sex whether or not they get comprehensive sexuality education at school, whether or not their friends are abstinent or sexually active, and whether or not you and your child have had “the talk.”
So what’s a parent to do? Well, for starters you can attend my Straight Talk Parenting Series workshop Jan. 21.

This may seem like a daunting task, but with new knowledge and a little bit of practice, I will teach parents how to connect with their children and help them develop into sexually competent people. For more information about what I do, visit www.meganmaas.com.
