Talking about sexuality with boys and girls

Don’t avoid the topic of sexuality with your children – both girls and boys.

  • Help them avoid pressure to have sex before the right time for them, eg when drinking a lot
  • Teach them strategies that they can use when caught in difficult situations
  • Avoid ‘gay-bashing’ as they grow up

Activities:

Create time away with each of your kids

Taking each of your children on a trip with you, whether overseas or just for a few days to the next town, is a great way to spend time with your child and help them feel special.

Tips:

The benefits of sleep for your child
