Welcome!

How can you keep your children sexually safe and healthy?

How can you give them accurate, age-appropriate information about sex that will protect them from predators and help them to live healthy, loving, satisfying lives?

I wrote The Sex-Wise Parent because I want parents to feel empowered with knowledge and facts. There's a lot you can do—from preschool years through young adulthood.

I hope you'll buy the book.

And I hope you'll come back to this site frequently for news and tips about sexual health and safety. We also welcome and address the questions faced by educators, policy, and law enforcement professionals committed to these concerns.

You'll also find updates about my appearances and workshops with parents and professionals across America discussing my book, The Sex Wise Parent. You can order a copy of the book online.
