Really listen to your children – they will notice!

Remove distractions, focus on your child, and listen to what they are saying.

  • Don’t boomerang discussion back to yourself
  • Ask yourself what it is like from their shoes
  • Become curious about their music and interests (eg. buy & read a magazine about them)

Activities:

Grow a garden together

Help your child to learn about nature and plants by growing herbs, vegetables or even flowers together.

Tips:

“The (Sex) Talk”

By the time your child is ready for the sex talk, it's likely they know a lot about the biology of it all from school or elsewhere.
Instead of focusing on the technical talk, start a conversation about how your child can make the best decisions for themselves.
