Connecting parents and children one conversation at a time.
Our programs have been designed to encourage discussion, promote comfort, and have fun, all while learning about our bodies and the many amazing things that they're capable of.
Why do we avoid talking to kids about sex and growing up?
- This is how it's always been done
- It's much easier to avoid these conversations than to have them
- Fear that your kids will ask questions
- Fear that your kids will repeat what they learned to their peers
- Fear that they will be scared or uncomfortable if we tell them the truth
- Fear that we will inadvertently encourage our children to have sex if we talk about it
- Fear that we will say the wrong thing
- Fear that your kids are too young for this conversation
These fears are very valid, but really mostly untrue. Kids are information seekers and are also very curious and determined when it comes to finding out information when they hear about it.
Parents have always struggled with how to find the right words to discuss puberty, reproduction, and sexuality with their children, or just avoided the conversation all together. We have hoped for years that schools will tackle the sex education talks for us, but ask yourself this…who do you want your child’s sexual values and beliefs to come from? Do you prefer a program at school that you aren’t involved in, or a family sex education program that includes parents in the discussion so you know EXACTLY what your kids are learning? The Rites of Passage has provided puberty education classes and sex education classes for almost ten years. Classes are taught by a Registered Nurse with almost two decades of experience in women and children’s health.
I believe that educating parents and children together is a great way to begin these conversations in an environment that promotes sex positive learning. Long past the classroom setting, my classes give you the ability to take the information that you have learned and continue talking with your children, while sharing the beliefs and values that are vital to your family. Learning about our bodies and the many amazing things that they are capable of can be a LOT of fun!
I love the dialogue that follows your classes. It makes it so much easier to talk about everything!

Our class was awesome! It made me feel really comfortable to know what to expect with puberty. I’m not scared about it anymore.

We had pretty open communication before, but this has really helped us discuss more topics openly.
Jodi Kaye was born and raised in Arizona and is the mother of three daughters. She has been a Registered Nurse for over twenty years.
Jodi began teaching puberty education classes to help others contribute to the growth and education of their children and has been helping families to openly discuss puberty and adolescent stages since early 2013.
