Good Inside with Dr. Becky

Talking with your kids about private parts, how babies are made, and more...

Episode Summary

<p>There's no "appropriate age" to start talking about sensitive topics, like sex or private parts, with kids. When a child asks a question, it means they're ready for a (developmentally appropriate) answer. Of course, while many of us want to talk openly with our kids, few of us had honest conversations about these topics when we were younger. It's normal to feel stuck or awkward! In this episode, Dr. Becky walks through multiple scripts for affirming your child's natural curiosity about bodies, babies, and more without any shame, so they feel safe coming to you with all sorts of questions as they get older. Remember this: It's not our honesty, but our avoidance, that makes kids uncomfortable about their bodies.<p/> <p/> <p/> Follow Dr. Becky on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/drbeckyatgoodinside/ <p/> Subscribe for weekly strategies and scripts:https://goodinside.com/newsletter/ <p/> Learn more with Dr. Becky’s workshops: https://learning.goodinside.com/ <p/> <p/> Today’s episode is brought to you by the following sponsors:<p/> <p/> FEED is an impact driven lifestyle brand on a mission to end childhood hunger.
