Amy Lang was a sexuality educator throughout her 20’s and 30’s, who “loved talking to people about sex.” But when her four-year-old son made a comment about his penis, she froze. She was so surprised at how uncomfortable she was that she had a eureka moment. “I’m going to have to figure out how to help other parents, and myself, talk to their kids about sexuality.” Annie talks with Amy about where that parental discomfort comes from and how we can get past it to empower our kids with the information they need to feel good about themselves and make good choices.
