Sexual Safety - I Can't Believe Jackson Asked This! - Part 2
Today we continue to talk about sexual safety with kids and specifically about a conversation that Jackson had with Ellie. We feel like this intense conversation could not have happened unless we did the things which we talked about in Part 1.  We know that each parenting style and kid is different so these ideas may not apply in every situation. We encourage you to do what you feel is best for your kids. That being said, we feel like it's something we need to do. We know our kids will be experiencing this at some point in time, they might as well learn to be safe and prepared from their parents in a controlled environment. http://trustandwill.com/ellieandjared for 10% off your purchase!
