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

Tips:

Eat together

Even with a busy work schedule it is possible to make family meal time a priority.

Tips:

Help your kids avoid smoking

Talk with your children about the issues and pressures around smoking, and help them develop avoidance strategies.
