Hello! You have found our Parent 2 Parent Toolkit! Here, we provide you with information about what to do when you find out your child is displaying sexual behavior problems, how to talk about this with others, how to plan for success with your child, and how to practice self-care. You will also find links to articles about common misunderstandings and questions, and that offer coping mechanisms for your family. Please explore the videos below on communicating with your child and finding self-love and support for yourself. We hope that you will browse this page and come away with a sense of hope, control, and balance, and an increased sense of knowledge that will help you advocate for your child and yourself.
