How to Teach Your Kids about Pornography with Kristen Jenson

As a part of the Sexual Health Series, today we are chatting with the amazing Kristen Jenson, author of the best-selling Good Pictures Bad Pictures series. She shares with us; how important it is to talk with our children about pornography. 

Kristen loves helping and empowering parents. She encourages them and equips them with what to do WHEN (not if) their child sees pornography. These books give children a simple and age appropriate definition of what a bad picture is, and what to do when they see it.

At what age, is it appropriate to talk to your child about pornography?? Well… “At what age does your child have access to the internet”? WOAH! A big eye opener. 

Even with the best technology and ALL of the filters we put in place. There will come a time, when your child is staring at a screen full of adult content. Will they know what to do when they see it? Will they come home and tell you about it?

Kristen teaches us the importance of having these difficult conversations early on. It actually strengthens the parent-child bond when you face these challenges together and even more, helps our children have healthy sex lives when they are married.

Some of the resources mentioned in the episode are: Healthy Sex Vs. Porn Sex and Protect Young Minds Resources

Happy 4th of July with The American Moms, Brittany and Andrea

In today’s interview with the sisters behind the Instagram account, The American Moms, Brittany and Andrea share with us their 4th of July traditions, how to get more involved in our communities, who inspires them and some thoughts on failure.

Brittany recently ran for City Counsel in her town and shares with us her thoughts on small town politics and what she learned from the experience. She talked about her philosophy that you miss 100% of the shots that you do not take, and I loved her ideas about this. It’s ok if you do not win everything and there is still so much to learn and take from these experiences.

You can learn more about these amazing sisters on their website: www.theamericanmoms.com or follow them on Instagram @theamericanmoms. I am so grateful to have had them on the show and I wish you all a very happy 4th of July.
