Talking to Your Kids About Sex With Shafia Zaloom

Today on the show, we’ve got Shafia Zaloom, a health educator and author who develops curricula for sex education in schools across the country. Shafia and I discuss the most effective ways parents can teach their kids about sex to develop healthy sexuality and cultivate shame-free knowledge.

Shafia also brings up specific words and strategies to use in helping children learn about sex, so that you can go into conversations about sex with an expert-level toolkit. We also get into how to teach consent and what we can do improve Sex Ed in schools. Spoiler: It starts with you!! The show ends with me taking calls and answering questions, like “what do you do if your partner hates oral?” or “how do you stop dating the wrong person?” No question is off-limits.
