Talking to Your Kids About Sex: Resources

Updated: Jun 26

"Regardless of your feelings about the court's ruling today, we need to start talking to our children about sex and how to engage in sex safely and happily. This should include a discussion about how to communicate with sexual partners and how to access contraceptives. Until all parents get behind this, we are in for a dismal future." -Dr. Katie Schubert, LMHC, Certified Sex Therapist

We’ve included a list of resources below on how to talk to your kids about sex. Our team at Cypress Wellness Center is also here if you need any guidance. You can send us your questions here.
