A Sexual Health Education App for Parents and Children

Posted by Tammi A. Tannura -

Recently, I attended the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists conference (AASECT) in Miami, Florida. Without a doubt, it was the best professional conference I have ever attended in my 20 year career. It was so full of valuable sessions for sexual health educators that I had a difficult time choosing which sessions to attend. In addition, there was a multitude of resources presented by national vendors. Birdees® is one of the resources I picked up and just had to share it.

Birdees® is an iPad or iPad mini application that helps parents have tough conversations about sexual health matters with children ages 2-8 in an appropriate and interactive way. The application allows a child to have a guided experience with a parent or an independent, self-directed learning experience. Free content includes:

  • Having conversations with your child

  • Body parts and functions

  • Boundaries

  • iBody

  • iTools

Other content is available such as menstruation, pregnancy and reproduction, and relationships, but these require a fee.

Check out this app and let me know your thoughts.

Stay tuned for a Birdees® app for 9-15 year olds coming soon.
