    EP 60 - How to talk to kids about stress - Level One

    EP 60 - How to talk to kids about stress - Level One

    Welcome back to Six Minute Sex Ed, the podcast that helps people talk about sex, relationships, and growing up. Created and hosted by Sex Education Teacher Kim Cavill. Find her at www.teaandintimacy.com - https://twitter.com/sexposparenting - https://www.instagram.com/sixminutesexed/

    This week’s episode is level one, making it perfect for listeners of any age, and we’re going to talk about stress. We’ll answer five questions:

    What is stress?
    What does stress do to your body?
    What does stress do to your brain?
    Why do we feel stress?
    How can we feel better?

    Stress is what we feel when we worry about something, feel uncomfortable, or get overwhelmed. Kids have been feeling more and more stressed every year even before Covid 19, but Covid 19 has made that stress a lot worse. Kids aren’t just feeling normal stresses, either, like getting butterflies before a big test or nerves before a big game. Kids are feeling traumatic stresses about school, being kept from their friends or other people they care about, sick family members, and family traumas. Listen to this episode with the kids you care about and start an important conversation about the types of stress and stress relief today.

    EP 59 - How to talk to people about face masks - Level Two

    EP 59 - How to talk to people about face masks - Level Two

    Welcome back to Six Minute Sex Ed, the podcast that helps people talk about sex, relationships, and growing up. Created and hosted by Sex Education Teacher Kim Cavill. Find her at www.teaandintimacy.com - https://twitter.com/sexposparenting - https://www.instagram.com/sixminutesexed/

    This week’s episode is level two, making it perfect for tweens, teens, and adults. We are going to learn how to talk to people about wearing masks.

    Theme song is "This Year" by the Mountain Goats

    What does wearing masks have to do with sex education, you might ask? The answer is, a lot! Effectively talking to people about the importance of wearing masks is a lot like talking to people about the importance of using STI protection, like condoms, or birth control, like the pill.

    Masks, condoms, and the pill are all protective measures that reduce the risk of infection. The principles of public health can help us to educate one another about how to reduce risk in our communities.

    Public health is the science of preventing disease and promoting health through influencing the choices we make both collectively and individually.

    We know effective public health messages are non-judgmental, easy to understand, consistent, and connected to the communities they target. Ineffective public health messages are fear based, complicated, inconsistent, and irrelevant to the communities they target.

    When we as individuals try to influence people we care about to comply with protective measures, whether it’s STI testing, condom use, or wearing a face mask, it’s important remember to be non-judgmental, easy to understand, consistent in what we say and do, and connected to the person we’re speaking to.

    We also need to remember we are entitled to our boundaries and setting boundaries with the people we care about. Setting and maintaining boundaries is a central part of healthy relationships.

    This week’s episode is level two, making it perfect for tweens, teens, and adults. This is a special episode where I interview Courtney Brame, Founder of Something Positive for Positive People, a podcast and nonprofit organization fighting STI stigma.

    Courtney and I talk about living with Herpes Type 2, how medical providers can better serve people in their care, how parents and caring adults can talk to young people about STIs, and the fact that STIs are common, manageable conditions…but the stigma associated with them is life-threatening.
