Great information whether you have a 5th grade student or a high schooler.

with Amy Lang, MAWhat is the #1 unavoidable fact about teen sexuality? What are typical middle schoolers up to in the sexuality department? What’s the key to getting them to listen to you about appropriate expectations and boundaries? Spend a humorous and informative evening with child sexuality expert, Amy Lang.
If you are looking for a proven professional who can show you how to have fearless and effective talks about sexuality; what kids need to know at each age and stage; and how to become a trusted resource so your children see you as their first and best source of information, I’m your gal! I use humor and a healthy dose of well researched advice to help you wholeheartedly jump into the sex talks.
I am fiercely committed to guiding parents and other adults to become empowered to have regular, open and effective conversations about the birds and the bees with the kids they love. My goal is to help you raise up your children into healthy, happy and whole adults who understand and embrace their unique sexuality.
With over 10 years of experience working with amazing clients with similar worries and concerns and guiding them to achieve remarkable success, my mission and commitment is to change and challenge cultural beliefs about children and sexuality. I aim to do this by teaching adults the best and most effective ways to talk, learn and think about the birds and bees talks. I provide research based, high quality, keynotes, workshops, webinars, books and other tools for adults so they can be true champions for the kids they care for and love. I want every child to grow up knowing sexuality is a healthy, normal, positive and fun part of life that comes with great responsibility.
For extra courage and support for your student and family, consider coming with one or more of their friends and their families!
