Talk about sexuality with boys and girls

Don’t assume your children are getting the right information and learning the right values about sexuality from media and/or their friends.

  • Make sure they have the right information, rather than information from the playground
  • Don’t rely on TV, magazines, the music they listen to (& watch) or the movies to teach your sons and daughters sexuality values
  • Talk about sexuality to your sons and daughters

Tips:

Learn to listen to your children

Dads and father-figures often find listening hard. Practise focused listening and it will become easier over time.

Tips:

Don’t be a reactive father

Plan parenting strategies ahead of time; don’t just react to the current issue.
