Ep #11 Who Is Lauren? But First, A Parents Worse Nightmare
This week Lauren and I wanted to take a moment to share with you how we met and why we chose to work together on this podcast. However, after hearing the news of the Uvalde Elementary School Shooting we felt the need to talk about the impact guns are having on our communities, overall psyche and the feeling of helplessness.  I have to believe that we as a society agree on more than we think, starting with our wellbeing and protection. Listen in as we discuss why we feel like we are being held hostage, the hypocrisy in thinking and that despite our different beliefs, we can do better for our children.

Welcome to House of Other: Sex Positive Parenting
Hey Renegades, Ashley here from House of Other.  After experiencing my child coming out a couple of years ago as non-binary I opened up to understand what this meant for them and  I found myself unlearning and learning a lot about human sexuality.  There was a world of terminology and education that I wasn't taught growing up.  I didn't know how to handle the conversations that arose but through my own self-coaching, new education, and interest to understand what they were going through, I discovered sex positive parenting. If you find yourself not understanding what the younger generation is talking about when it comes to gender and sexual diversity, intimate justice, and human sexuality, it's okay. You weren't taught, it's that simple. The truth is that the landscape has changed. And your kids need people in their lives who can communicate and educate them.  They need you.  The House of Other podcast is here to help those caregivers who want to take responsibility for educating their children on sexual wellness. We’ll help you give your sex education a modern update and teach you how to have those conversations with your kids.  So if you’re committed to creating a conversation and space for your children that empowers them and their overall sexual wellbeing this show is for you.  Be sure to hit that follow button and together we’ll move from confusion and conflict, to curious and connected through intentional, present, and positive sex parenting.
