Healthy Boundaries Protect Kids from Sexual Abuse with Anya Manes
December 5, 2019
Hosted by Robin LaCross
Did you know the ideal age to start talking to your child about sex is five years old? If you missed the boat on that one, it’s not too late. In this episode, Anya Manes shares how parents can catch up on the “Sex Talk” and will guide you on what to say and when. One of the most essential conversations is around porn, but how do you deliver the message in a way that your pre-teen will see the wisdom of your words and opt not to engage? Anya will show you how. As a high school science teacher, Anya had the opportunity to see where the gaps were in children’s sex education and where parents and school systems fell short as pregnant girls dropped out of school. Her mission is to support parents to have a more comfortable, engaged, and ongoing dialog with their kids on the many topics of sex. By helping parents teach their kids to set and enforce boundaries, they protect them from sexual abuse and those who don’t have their best interest at heart. Don’t miss this important conversation!
