Where do babies come from? When will I start my period? What's sexting? Kids' questions about sexuality can be tricky! In this workshop, you'll learn a framework for thinking about sexuality more broadly, what kids need to know at each age and stage, and a tried-and-true process for answering even the toughest questions with ease and confidence.
You'll also hear the exact language an experienced sex educator uses to talk with kids about common topics, have an opportunity to connect with other caregivers, ask your most burning questions, and take home a curated resource list to help you tackle the talks beyond the workshop.
The goal is for you to leave feeling more comfortable and effective talking with the littles in your life about sexuality. This workshop is for anyone who lives or works with kids ages 4+.
Rebecca Koon has been teaching frank, feminist sex ed to kids and the grown-ups who love them since 2006. She is the founder of every.body talks, which helps families talk about sex, bodies, and relationships honestly. Getting her start in Planned Parenthood's community education program, Rebecca has been a labor doula and childbirth educator, trained teachers and other youth-serving professionals in talking to kids about sexuality, and published articles on sexual health, feminism, and structural supports for families. She did her graduate work in gender studies and brings an intersectional approach to all of her work. Currently, Rebecca is studying to be a school counselor and mental health therapist specializing in sexual and gender minority youth and their families. When she's not teaching you can find her cuddling her rescue dog, baking, or hiking in Forest Park.
You'll notice that we're offering two class cost options - $25, the regular cost of a She Bop class or workshop, and $15, a reduced cost option. While we want to make sure our instructors are compensated fairly for their hard work, we recognize that many of our community members are experiencing alterations to their finances at this time. If you are able to pay full price, we ask that you please consider doing so. If the lower cost option is a more accessible fit for you at this time, we encourage you to utilize that option.
Due to our commitment to paying educators fairly, all classes are excluded from sales and discounts.
