Trusted Sources: Sexuality Education & Our Children
In this episode, we discuss sexuality and “the talk.” Parents need to be aware of all the sources that children are using to get their information about sexuality. We shouldn’t think our children find us to be the only source for information, because we aren’t. They are bombarded with potential sources of varying qualities, most readily being their peers. My guest, Dr. Stephanie Loomis Pappas discusses an article she posted on her blog SnackDinner in reaction to a provocative article in Teen Vogue about helping to teach children to be critical consumers of information, including information on topics like sexuality. She has some great thoughts on how to start teaching young children to know who it is they are reading so when they get old enough to Google search, they can discern information from junk.
