Sex-Positive Parenting

We live in a hypersexual and sexually explicit culture, and while so many of us try to shield our kids from the sexual messages the media puts out, that’s only half the battle. The other half is to provide positive and accurate information for our kids.

At Come As You Are, our focus is on adult sexuality, and we want to support you as parents in providing an open and honest dialogue with your kids. Here are some links and resources to help!

What Makes a Baby

What Makes a BabyCrafted for children roughly from pre-school to 8-years-old, What Makes a Baby is written and illustrated to include all kinds of kids, all kinds of adults, and all kinds of families - regardless of how many people were involved, what the orientation, gender identity, or other make up of the family is, or how it came to be that way. It's a social justice approach to sex education. Like all picture books, it's meant to be read to a child and gives the adult reader the opportunity to fill in as much detail as they would like.
