Telling the Truth About Bodies

 

Coco’s Philosophy
Coco McAtee’s presentations lay a foundation with kids about the wonderful way we’re put together. Instead of approaching human sexual development through a negative lens, Coco’s classes and seminars give families a way to communicate about sex and human development that encourages positive attitudes and positive decisions.

• Empower and educate children in age-appropriate ways.
• Provide tools for parents and professionals working with children.
• Counter the rising tide of hyper-sexualized media aimed at kids.
• Fill gaps in the information parents and kids have about sexuality.
• Satisfy the natural curiosity that can drive kids to early experimentation.

With a relaxed appreciation of the natural beauty and wonder of all our healthy bodies, combined with a sharp awareness of the dangers our society and our media pose for our children, Coco makes tough topics fun and interesting.

You’ll leave feeling energized and ready to tackle the challenging issues of growth and development with your kids or the families you work with.

“Knowledge is power,” says Coco. “You wouldn’t toss your children in a pool without swimming lessons. Don’t send them out in the world unarmed with the protective armor of accurate information.”

This can be a painful part of parenting, just as taking our kids for vaccinations can be painful for them and for us. Getting shots makes a lot of our kids cry or create quite a scene. We know it’s the right thing to do, though, so we do it anyway.

“Our own parents may have done a poor job of telling the truth about bodies and babies.  We as parents may be scared of this topic, hoping all will be fine,” Coco acknowledges. “Unfortunately, the culture, powered by the media, is not waiting on us.  Our kids are in serious need of guidance. You can raise the odds that your children will have healthy relationships.”
