Empower your kids

When children have this information, and a safe adult to speak to about these topics, they are more likely to report inappropriate contact, or situations that make them feel unsafe soon after the incident.

By the end of the course you will be able to navigate almost all questions your children may have about bodies, gender, puberty, consent, safety, sexuality and sex.

You will also learn how to bring these topics up with your children if they have not started asking questions.
