It was a fantastic opportunity to have been invited by Annie Fox from Family Confidential to talk about the digital age, pornography and the importance of having THE MOST ESSENTIAL conversation with our children about sex as a natural part of life. This Video Podcast is a great resource for anyone looking for balanced guidance.
Helping our kids set boundaries and take responsibility for personal attitudes and behaviours is in our hands. As parents, it’s important to not only let our children know about the healthy and unhealthy aspects (particularly in a culture flooded by pornography), but also discuss with them what options they have. In doing so, we can instill grounded insight and empower them to make informed choices. In our conversation, we talked about the different obstacles that we’ve encountered as both parents and educators in getting a positive message across.
