Transcription: 
You really cannot tell by looking if your child is gay. Kids exhibit all different kids of behaviors, especially young kids regarding gender. So we all know that little three year old boy who loves pink and sparkles. And that just means he loves pink and sparkles. Kids´ gender is very fluid until they are about six or seven, so they experiment with what does it mean to be a boy, what does it mean to be a girl. Some boys like girl stuff. Some girls like boy stuff. So if your kid´s gender is not very clear by six or seven, you might want to talk to a professional about gender identification. This is a great time to have a kid who is a gender bender because there is tons of help and support for those kinds of families.

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.
