Not. The. Talk.

An online companion course supporting you in having comprehensive, comfortable, and casual conversations with your children about sex. This program includes all the resources you need in one place.

Not. The. Talk. is perfect for any parent or caregiver who understands the importance of equipping their kids when it comes to having “the talk” but doesn’t quite know where to start or just doesn’t have the words.

*This program is for parents with kids 10 and under.

Here's what we cover inside our
Not. The. Talk. Course

Family comes first and that is why we want you, as a parent, to be the first person your child comes to for a question about difficult topics, such as sex. We want to empower parents to build a strong relationship with their kids, in which no question is too big to tackle together.
Although we address some serious content, our discussions can still be pretty funny. Our real life examples make for some hilarious commentary. Besides, we want to draw you in, not bore you out.
We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again. Your kids deserve better answers to hard questions. Together, we did the extensive (boring for most people) research. We read the 200 books you don’t have time or interest in reading to save you time and money when preparing for this important conversation.
As parents, we want our kids to be happy, healthy, and safe. Health is defined as a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. So, we want to be your starting point for health with your kids.
Our course comes from a place of sympathy for parents everywhere. We know this seems hard. That's why we are going there, together. We hold compassion for people with different values and life experiences, because we know that these conversations are packed with so many emotions. At Oh. My. Word., we will never tell a family what values to have. We just ask families to be mindful of their values.
