Sex-positive reading with our children is fun and doesn't have to be awkward. Ty (my 7yo) and I made this video of highlights from our read to show you an example, in case there are any doubts.

????Some tips to remember:

▪️start early and read often
▫️scope books out first to make sure the messages are in line with your values and that the content feels appropriate for your child's age and comprehension level
▪️consider reading these books in parts versus all in one sitting. This will help with comprehension.
▫️watch for verbal and non-verbal cues from your child and ask questions when needed to gauge their comfort and understanding of the material
▪️welcome questions, and do not feel you have to know all of the answers
▫️even if your kids are older, reading together versus having them read solo then come to you with questions, is the most effective way to encourage a safe space for talking together about these topics
