A crash course for parents on talking to teens and older kids about sex in order to keep them healthy, happy, and safe—and how to do it so in a way to have your kids listen
Too often, parents wear blinders when it comes to the sex lives of their children. They hear the statistics—how 80% of college students have engaged in rough sex or choking; how 44% have shared nude or suggestive photos via text—and think, “Not my kid.”
Yes, Your Kid is the reality check parents need about what sex is like today—so they can better educate and support their tweens, teens, and college students.
Combining insights from cutting-edge research, dozens of conversations with college students, and on-the-ground legal experience, Yes, Your Kid provides:
- An overview of key topics in sexuality, from communication and consent to pornography and rough sex, describing how things have changed
- Real-world legal stories illustrating today’s consensual sex pitfalls—and how to help your child avoid them
- Age-appropriate tools to not only talk to tweens, teens, and college-aged kids about sex and consent, but also build a healthy foundation with younger children
- Concrete advice parents can share directly with their children so that—if and when their children become sexually active with partners—they are more likely to have safer, consensual sex
- Plus, a chapter focused on the consent, communication, and relationship education needs of young people on the autism spectrum
Parents of teenagers and young adults have enormous catching up to do to understand how sexting, internet porn, TikTok, Title IX, and more have shaped sex for young people. Authoritative, supportive, sex-positive, and facts-forward, Yes, Your Kid provides parents with the frank, accurate information they and their children need to safely navigate today’s sexual landscape.
