Transcription: 
If you walk in on your kid and they are engaged in sexual play activity, like doctor or full on sexual activity, simply say, "Hey, I see you guys are checking out each other's penises or making out like mad on the couch." Then say, "I feel uncomfortable when this happens, why don't you find something else to do." Then try and redirect their behavior, and then say, "We'll talk about it later." Don't teach, when you are hot. When you walk in on a kid, fooling around with their boyfriend, you're going to be freaking out a little bit. When you walk in on your kid comparing his penis to another child's penis, you're going to be freaking out a little bit. Calm down and then calmly talk to the kid about appropriate behavior, boundaries, and that sort of thing.

Sex Education Expert

Despite her 16 years of experience as a sexual health educator, Amy Lang found herself completely tongue-tied when her four year old son had "something very important" to tell her about his penis. Shocked by her discomfort, she realized if she was struggling, other parents must be too. Amy also holds an MA in Applied Behavioral Science and her focus was in adult education and group facilitation. She decided to combine her love of sex talking and her love of working with adults and started Birds + Bees + Kids in 2006.

Amy is a three time Mom’s Choice Award winner for her book, Birds + Bees + YOUR Kids - A Guide To Sharing Your Beliefs About Sexuality, Love and Relationships and DVD, Birds + Bees + Kids - The Basics. She is also the author of the book, Say What?! The Birds + Bees for Progressive Parents - What to Say and How to Say It!

She has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, Seattle Magazine, Parent Map magazine and has contributed to a gazillion other publications. Sex advice guru Dan Savage says “Amy is a parent’s best friend-with-benefits when it comes to talking to kids about sex.” 

Though Birds + Bees + Kids, Amy helps parents of all beliefs have easy, open and effective conversations about sexuality, love and relationships with their kids. She offers talks, workshops, one-on-one consultations and live webcasts. Amy is also the co-founder of MamaCON - Inspiration and Tools for Modern Moms, a conference supporting the hard work of moms everywhere.
