EDUCATION FOR KIDS

As a parent and a sexologist, Kelley believes that educating our children in a positive manner helps them develop healthy self-esteem and self-concept. Relationships teach us about love, connection, and community. How we show up in relationships is at the core of who we are as human beings.

Everyone deserves the most effective sex ed:
