Dr. Meg Meeker

I’m Dr. Meg Meeker, a practicing pediatrician, parent, and grandparent in addition to being a coach, speaker, and author, so I’ve seen parenting from every angle.

After helping over 100,000 parents become more consistent role models for their children, I can definitively say that being a great parent doesn’t need to be complicated. It really just comes down to boundaries and discipline.

EPISODE NOTES

Kids are exposed to sex today as never before. Social media, the internet, movies, television and music videos typically portray sex in a crass and shameful manner. Our kids desperately need to understand that sex is amazing, it’s wonderful, and something they will enjoy for decades to come.. when done in the right context and timing. Your child not only needs to hear about sex from you, he/she actually wants to hear about sex from you. They want to know what you think about them and sex. You are the one who can present sexual information to them in a positive way. You can empower them to postpone their sexual debut as long as possible, and in doing so, decrease the number of potential sex partners that they will have. As parents, we must be the ones to give the initial talk, and subsequent talks, about sex with our kids. Today’s sexualization of our kids has taught them that sex is dark and twisted, but as parents we need to teach them just the opposite — that sex is a wonderful gift that should be cherished and cared for. Dr. Meg gives helpful insight and information to equip parents to tackle this difficult subject with their kids.

A CONVERSATION WITH DR MEG (PART 1)

In this frank and honest discussion, Dr. Meg doesn’t beat around the bush when it comes to talking about sex with our kids — she shares startling statistics of STI’s (sexually transmitted infections) in our children.. the impact of which goes far beyond the physical consequences. Dr. Meg shines a light on the behaviors and emotions of kids when involved in teenage sex, and explains why depression is so often linked to our kids’ sexual activity. The bottom line? Sex is not for kids. It takes guts to parent against today’s current culture, to train kids to delay sexual activity. Dr. Meeker equips and encourages parents to raise their children above the toxicity and sexualization of the culture, which will profoundly impact decades of their lives.
