Keynote at Parenting University

Cathy and Todd offer a deeply introspective (but also entertaining and humorous) presentation that offers the male and female viewpoint. Cathy is more spiritual/emotional and Todd is more practical/logical, so they share differing perspectives while always remaining reflective and respectful. They share stories to make the message more applicable, and are always open to questions so every audience feels heard and understood.

Sex Education for the 21st Century

Consent, Identity, and Healthy Relationships

Sexuality is a normal aspect of being human. It’s an essential part of self-worth and self-understanding. Yet today, our children are being exposed to, and bombarded by information earlier and more often. Without proper guidance, these mixed messages and peer pressure can lead to confusion, anxiety, and acting on sexual curiosity. But how can you speak with your children in a way that resonates?

Zen Parenting Radio’s Cathy+Todd Adams provide parents with an interactive and in-depth look at sex in the 21st Century. Through candid conversations and stories, they explore:

  • Why sex education is beyond the mechanics of sex
  • The importance of communication and talking about identity
  • Definitions of consent, sexual harassment and sexual assault
  • How to develop healthy relationships over time • Why “the talk” is actually an ongoing conversation
