Talking to teens about sex

Parents and care-givers play an important role in the teaching of sexuality and relationships to young people.

Most parents and carers know that, just like learning how to play or talk, sexual development is a part of human development and know that it will happen whether we talk to our children or not.

Support for teachers

Providing sexuality and relationships education in schools is a rewarding and challenging task that teachers and educators should feel supported and confidant to do.
