Transcription: 
When kids experiment with other kids of the same sex, it does not mean that they’re gay, it usually just means that they’re curious. Kids engage in sexual experimentation and sexual exploration from the time they’re itty-bitty until they’re heavily into adolescence. So testing the waters with maybe a kiss or some fondling or playing games that involve a husband and a wife and it’s two girls. Oftentimes, this is when kids will have a sexual experience of some sort with a child that is the same sex. Usually this behavior is considered natural and healthy, it’s pretty typical and common and it doesn’t mean that your child is gay. It just means that they’re curious and experimenting and they’re with a good friend and it just happens to be who’s available.

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.
