You don't have to abandon your values to teach your family about masturbation! Join me in this values-based course and start finding clarity in the conflict of masturbation. Designed for parents in supporting their kids of all ages.
As a certified sex therapist who is also a Mormon, I get a lot of questions from parents about masturbation. Many of them sound something like this:
“I've literally never had any conversations about [masturbation] with my parents or church leaders other than don’t touch yourself. I didn’t even know if it was a thing girls could do until I was a teenager. I feel very ill-prepared to talk to my own children about it. I do feel like the standard religious answers conflict with what I want to teach my kids, so I feel paralyzed about what to do. Help?”
“I was always told it was a sexual sin but I also know that it is in other ways part of normal sexuality and can help partners better understand and work together through sexual encounters to have a better experience.”
“What is your take on children masturbating from an LDS perspective? I have a 4 and 6 year old and they both do it, almost daily. I know it’s not a good idea to freak out about it and that it’s not sexual for them right now, but I’m wondering when does it become sexual for them and how am I supposed to determine that? When do I tell them it’s not okay anymore? How do I approach it?”
These concerns all come from parents' love for their kids, and a desire to teach them principles and guidance that align with their values.
