You want your child to

feel comfortable talking

to you about anything

and you feel a 

responsibility to talk

to them about sex.

But that’s a lot easier said than done…. Does any of this sound familiar?

  • You recognize that it’s important it is to teach your child about sex, but you’re not quite sure how to navigate this realm of parenting.

  • You want to control the narrative around what your child knows and learns about sexual health, but you also want to make sure you have accurate information and approach it in an age-appropriate manner.

  • You don’t just want to give your child a set of rules to follow, instead you want to raise them to be critical thinkers, who have the knowledge, skills, and confidence to make healthy decisions for themselves.

  • You want to become your child’s go-to sexual health resource and guide, but you don’t know how to start the conversation.

 

  • You want to build a relationship of trust and openness with your child so they come and talk to you about all aspects of their life (including sex!), but you feel lost about how to make that happen.

And it all feels harder than it should be because you’re navigating this complex topic without a guidebook or a mentor to follow!

In most areas of parenting, you can call upon your parents’ example for help. But when it comes to sexual education, your parents weren’t able to be a sexual health resource for you in the way you want to be for your child.

Whether your parents were uncomfortable navigating the topic, waited too long to bring it up, or avoided the subject altogether, you don’t have an example of how to raise a sexually healthy child.

No wonder you have so many doubts and questions about how to handle this topic!

You can become your

child’s go-to sexual

health resource and talk

to your child about sex

with confidence, clarity,

and purpose.

How would it feel to…

N

Confidently know what to teach your child (and where to find answers) about all of the biggest sexual health topics.

N

Develop a holistic understanding of sexual health and in-depth knowledge of sexual health topics so you can pass that knowledge on to your child.

N

Know how to keep the lines of communication open, even when dealing with tough topics in a way that encourages your child to continue coming to you for guidance and support.

N

Be in control of the narrative about all things sexual health with your child, so they don’t learn from other sources…

N

Truly be a guide for your child and someone they come to for advice around sex and other important topics.

YES!

You can create a relationship with your child where they respect your knowledge and wisdom and feel comfortable talking to you about anything…. Including sex!

The earlier

you start,

the better.

The earlier you start having conversations about sexual health, the quicker you lay the groundwork and build a foundation that allows you to become your child’s go-to person. This makes it so much easier to navigate tough topics when the time comes.

But before you can have these conversations, you have to get clear on your own personal values around sex and ask yourself hard questions like…..

  • How do I make my own empowered decisions about sex?  

  • Am I informed on sexual health topics to a point where I feel comfortable teaching my child? 

  • Am I equipped to talk about ‘taboo’ topics like masturbation, pornography, and sexual identity?

Once you’ve clarified these things for yourself, then you’ll be able to navigate conversations with confidence, accurate knowledge, and a clear purpose.

But don’t worry, you don’t have to figure this out on your own! I’m here to help.

“I absolutely love Janelle’s material! Her lesson’s are clear and thorough, while at the same time not busy or confusing. I am astounded by the amount and quality of material that Janelle has developed. You will not be disappointed by any material you purchase from Janelle!”

Inside Reimagining

The Talk™ you’ll follow

five key phases that

will empower you to

raise a sexually

healthy child.

1. UNCOVER YOUR SEXUAL VALUES

Sexual values are the personal beliefs and principles defining what is right for you sexually. Taking time to know and understand your own sexual values clarifies what you want to teach your child in terms of what it means to be sexually healthy.

2. IDENTIFY YOUR SEXUAL DECISION MAKING PROCESS

Your sexual decision making process relates to your sexual ethic (the set of sexual actions, behaviors, and thoughts you define as healthy and ideal). You have to understand your criteria for making your own sexual decisions before you can pass that knowledge on to your child. This phase will give you a framework for teaching your child how to think critically and make empowered and healthy sexual decisions.

3. Understand And Teach The Basics

Before you start teaching your child about sexual health, you may need to brush up on the basics for yourself. Reviewing the basic knowledge connected to the various elements of sexual health will fill any gaps in your understanding. Then you can begin to teach the necessary information to your child.

4. YOUR CHILD’S SEXUAL VALUES

Once you’ve identified your sexual values and decision making process, and refreshed your knowledge on the basics, you’ll be ready to start guiding your child as they identify their own sexual values. At this stage you’ll be able to intentionally give your child age-appropriate space and freedom to uncover and identify their personal values.

5. YOUR CHILD’S SEXUAL DECISION MAKING FRAMEWORK

Using our simple framework, your child will define how they make sexual decisions. Guiding them through this process plays a fundamental role in raising an empowered decision maker. By helping them define a personalized framework for making sexual decisions, they are able to better make choices that align with their values, needs, wants, and boundaries.

These five key phases are woven into nine core course modules inside Reimagining The Talk. Together, the modules highlight this outlined progression while examining core elements of sexual health. This process will give you the knowledge and confidence that are essential to raising a fully informed, critical thinker who is able to make empowered decisions about sex.

“Great resource!

Really easy to follow

and well laid out.”

 

– Chelsea D.

Get started with Reimagining The Talk™ today and learn how to raise your sexually healthy child!

Becoming your child’s

go-to resource and

raising them to be

sexually healthy are

NOT a given!

You don’t want to wait too long or say too little (like your parents did)! Because without putting the time and intention to help your child establish their sexual values, build knowledge, and make healthy sexual decisions, raising a sexually healthy child won’t happen on it’s own.

By starting now, you have an opportunity to develop a trusting, open, and honest relationship with your child so you can confidently talk about sexual health before it’s too late.

The reality is that the sooner you start preparing and having these conversations, the better. If not, it will just keep getting harder as your child grows older and begins to develop their own understanding of what sexual health is, making it more difficult for them to see you as a safe, knowledgeable, and trustworthy sexual health resource.

By providing your child with accurate, age-appropriate information and knowledge, you’ll be able to control the narrative. If not, they could end up learning about sexual health from their friends, the media, the Internet, or worse, pornography.

Reimagining The Talk equips you with the practical knowledge, easy-to-follow guidance, and tools needed to engage in open and honest conversations about sexual health with your child. So you can confidently guide your child as they build critical thinking skills and learn how to make empowered sexual decisions.

“Excellent resource, always know with Janelle I am getting high quality products that are easy to understand and well designed!”

– Brianna

Hi, I'm Janelle

Sexual Health Educator Janelle The

Hi, I'm Janelle

I’m one of those sexual health educators that grew up NEVER talking about sex.

Not at home. 

Not at school. 

Not even with my friends. 

Seriously, it was not something I had any confidence or comfort navigating. So you can imagine my shock when I realized that I had to teach sex ed during my student teaching practicum, right at the start of my teaching career.

Let me tell you, it was NOT love at first sight and it took a few years of awkwardness, trial and errors, and learning how to keep my cool while answering embarrassing questions before I started to love teaching sexual health.

Now, nearly a decade later, I have a deep passion for teaching sexual health and can confidently navigate my way around even the most in-depth sexual health conversation. However, my focus has shifted from teaching students in sex ed classes, to to working with parents to help them confidently teach their children about sex. 

I am particularly passionate about helping those parents who, like me, didn’t talk a lot about sex growing up and don’t have a reference or model to follow. If I could learn how to navigate this unfamiliar and often uncomfortable realm of parenting, I am certain that you can too.

My experience has given me 100% confidence that any parent (no matter their background) can become their child’s go-to sexual health resource by intentionally learning how to talk to their child about sex with confidence, clarity, and purpose! 

I created Reimagining The Talk to help parents like you boost your confidence in talking about sex, build medically-accurate knowledge, and define a clear purpose and plan for navigating the process of raising a sexual healthy and empowered child. 

If you’re ready to change the narrative and become your child’s go-to sexual health resource, I would love to help you do that inside Reimagining The Talk™!

Answers to your Questions about Reimagining The Talk™:

Why should I take initiative in this area rather than letting my child bring it up?

– If you wait for your child to start the conversation (that is, if they ever do bring it up) you’ve missed your opportunity to control the narrative. By the time your child decides to come to you, they will have already been exposed to sexual health topics through the media, their friends, the Internet, or pornography. By taking initiative you ensure that your child is building a medically-accurate understanding of sexual health, centered on the sexual values YOU want your child to learn.

Can’t my child just learn this at school?

– The simple truth is that sex Ed programs in school only have so much time and so many resources. If your child only learns about sex through Sex Ed, it may only be a few days over the course of their entire education. And there is only so much a child can learn in a few days. Also, because school Sex Ed programs are limited in time and resources, they tend to focus on the technical details of sex, preventing pregnancy, and STI protection. This means they don’t have time to dive into the other elements of holistic sexual health (like autonomy and consent, sexual values, sexual decisions making, etc.). Also, by having conversations about sexual health with your child, you’re able to highlight your sexual values and your framework for making sexual decisions, which are not taught at school.

Is this a faith-based program? How do I know it will align with my family’s values?

– This is not a faith based program. However, it can be compatible with any faith or belief system as it is centered on parents defining their sexual values and sexual decisions making framework as a guide for teaching their child about sexual health. As the instructor, I do not share or promote my personal sexual values or sexual decisions making framework, instead I share knowledge and tools for you to define your values and determine how you make decisions. This means that any parent, no matter their beliefs system, will be able to use this program as a guide for promoting their personal sexual values.

What if my child is LGBTQ+?

– You and your child are absolutely welcome!!!

How much time will I need to dedicate to this course?

– Because it’s self-paced it all depends on how quickly you move through each module. Some are rather straightforward and you’ll finish in a snap. Others call for more reflection and personal discovery, which may require more time to compete. That being said, the course is ultimately designed as a resource you can keep coming back to as your child enters a new phase of life or a specific sexual health issue arises.

What if topics like masturbation and pornography make me uncomfortable and I’m not sure how to navigate these topics?

– Have no fear, you are not alone! Most parents feel a little apprehensive about addressing these topics.  As we cover them in the course, I share information and knowledge to help you feel more educated on each topic. You’ll also get access to conversation guides, tips, and scripts to help you navigate these topics with your child.

When should I start talking to my child about sex? Are the materials age appropriate?

– You can start talking about sex from the day your child is born. Now that doesn’t mean you are necessarily talking about the act of sex with them, but you can begin with age appropriate education that contributes to raising a sexually healthy child from the beginning. Throughout the course I share materials to help you navigate conversations with children of ANY age, whether you’re a parent of a young child wanting to start the conversation early, or if you have a teenager that is ready to start dating!

Do you offer refunds?

– Yes! 14 day, no risk, no questions asked refunds. If you purchase Reimagining The Talk™ and it doesn’t meet your needs, just send us an email within 14 days of purchase and we will refund your money.

Will my spouse/parenting partner and I both have access to the course?

– Absolutely! We advocate for talking about sex to be a family affair! After purchasing, you will receive an email with login information for accessing the course content. You and your spouse/parenting partner will be able to share the login information and go through the course together.

Are there resources I can share directly with my child?

– Yes! While many of the resources are specifically for you as the parents, there are some resources that have been specifically designed for you to share with your child.

What if my child is a baby or toddler, would this be useful for me?

– Yes! No matter the age of your child, this course was designed for you. Throughout the course there are age-appropriate resources (like conversation guides) for talking to your kids of any age about sexual health topics!  Plus, by starting earlier, you’re getting that much of a head start on raising a sexually healthy child.

What if I still have more questions?

– I’m happy to answer any other questions you have! Email me at [email protected] and I’ll get back to you within 48 hours.
