      Raising a Sex-Positive Child

      Raising A Sex- Positive Child in A Sex-Negative Nation is a class for parents; ideally parents of very young children. Raising a sexually healthy child takes forethought. The earlier parents think about ways to develop a strong foundation for children, the better. Raising a sex-positive child takes years to foster, this is not a conversation that happens once or twice between parent and child. It is an open, nonjudgmental, communicative relationship that is cultivated over time. It is best if it starts at birth. This class will equip parents with the information and motivation to start educating their young child. It will help parents understand all that sexuality includes (from body image to reproduction to boundary setting to honoring “no”), think about the values they want to share with their children, and learn concrete ways to promote healthy sexual development. What parents learn in this class sets the stage for open, frank conversations where parents and children talk openly about their body’s (and their bodily functions), love, relationships, This class is taught by Kelley Johnson, Ph.D. Kelley is a fierce advocate for positive sexuality education. She teaches classes for students of all ages, providing the eduction needed to help children grow into sexually healthy adults. She teaches this class to provide answers to some of the most common questions parents have about child-rearing in a sex-positive environment. Kelley was the lead educator for the sex education program provided by the Buncombe County Healthy Department from 1993 to 1998. From 1995-2010 she taught Women's Health and Health and Sexuality at UNCA. She has been in private practice since 2009.
