Take Back the Talk

Helping parents and caregivers feel confident around their children's sexual development. 

Are you struggling to manage the fear, anxiety, and (let’s face it) confusion related to your child’s sexual development? Or maybe you are an educator or therapist who is noticing the ongoing body curiosity that accompanies early childhood development? Not sure how to begin the lifelong conversation related to sexual health and wellness? Kristin Hambridge LICSW and Paula Leech LMFT-CST are sex therapists and educators, with children of their own, who want to help you take back “the talk” by providing you with comprehensive sex education and tools to navigate the often overwhelming influence of caregiver modeling behaviors on healthy development; while also answering any and all questions you may have along the way. Our workshops are judgment-free, safe spaces developed specifically for devoted caregivers like you! So, what are you waiting for? Sign up!


By the end of this workshop you will:

  • Take back the power to understand what is happening with your child’s sexual development at each developmental stage.

  • Take Back your own sex education and fill in the gaps left by subpar high school sex-ed, uncomfortable conversations with adults, and locker room gossip.

  • Take back the ability to connect with your child over uncomfortable topics and understand how arming yourself with and sharing honest, age-appropriate information strengthens and deepens the bond between caregiver and child.

  • Take back your own fears related to masturbation, nudity, pornography, unsafe touch and peer sex-play.

  • Take back your own anxiety and develop the ability to respond to sexual expression, in-the-moment, with a clear head and open heart.

  • Take back and re-establish your partnered relationship as a model of healthy sexual expression and intimacy.

  • Take back the ability to unconditionally support your children’s gender expression and sexual orientation.
