Your children need you to protect and educate them, not ignore the problem. Let’s show you how easy that can be...

  • Your kids are getting a sexuality education, everyday - is it the one you want?
  • If you are not talking to your kids about sex and sexuality someone, or something else, already is - they are being told every day, that they  need to appear and act a certain 'sexual' way, in order  to be attractive and popular
  • Media, advertising, school yard, TV, popular culture, internet, porn, etc are your child’s main source of sex and sexuality education if they are not hearing it from you - this is confusing for kids so who can they turn to? 
  • The truth is - it does not have to be hard to talk to kids about these topics
  • Research clearly shows, that children benefit when their parents are their main educators about sex and sexuality, supported by school education

We both know you need to do this…

But…are some of your fears and questions getting in the way...?

  • What if I say too much? What if I don’t say enough? 
  • I don’t know what information is age appropriate? 
  • I’m often lost for words in the moment, when questions or teachable opportunities come up, so I avoid it all together
  • I don’t even know what language to use - I’ve never even said the word vagina out loud to an adult let alone a child!
  • My upbringing of it being a topic that is associated with  taboo, shame and guilt are getting in the way 
  • I don’t want to expose them to too much,  or even worse... give them ideas
  • There are so many topics to cover;  body parts, puberty, porn, social media, where do I even begin?
  • How do I start the conversations and what if they don’t want to hear it?

 

 

 

 

I know all those feelings,  I was there...even though I had been a sexual health nurse and educator for years - it was a whole new ball game when my own children started asking questions!!!  
Obviously  I knew the content and the topics - but not how to say it to my children!  This is hard - it doesn't come naturally for most people, but it couldn't be more  important, to your role of being responsible for  your child's health and wellbeing …
Being the main sex & sexuality education and information source for them, being their askable adult, their ‘go to’ person, is essential for their safety, health and happiness during their journey through life...

Would it help you to have  a step by step process with live support from me, on how to be the askable parent your child needs around sex and sexuality information? 

I mean, you can go ahead  and google all this and wade through the ‘World Wide Web’, or I can give you; each key topic,  broken down with content, tips and opportunity for you to ask questions...all based on the age and stage of your kids… 

The membership is designed for success, at giving your kids the accurate sexuality education  & information alternative they desperately need, from you, to counteract society's version that is impacting their right to a unique, safe, healthy and happy lifetime script for their sexuality journey ...

Suggestions are tried and tested with my three kids - my eldest is 15 yo.  I have been thrilled with how much my kids tell me about what is happening for them and  how open they are to hearing from me as their main educator.

YES, TELL ME MORE

You will have ongoing access to the most important (but simplified) information, based on the latest global expert advice and research.  Combined with my 25 years experience of tens of thousands of conversations about sex and sexuality. I have also taught thousands of school children and parents, I’ll share what I have learnt with you.

I have seen Vanessa speak live and what she says just makes sense. There is never a time too early to start talking about bodies and sexuality. If we were all so open and honest our kids would only know facts, not myths and lies. Thanks Vanessa for sharing your program and this podcast!

I attended one of these a few months ago. It was incredible, totally blew my mind open about lots of things, and in all honesty I could well do with another attendance to take more of it in. Was so inspired hearing about prep (~5 year olds) learning  about body safety (from Vanessa) and (then) being overheard (by teachers) using (accurate) consent language in the school yard. Admittedly I freaked out about online safety but more freaked out about where/who/what my boys might get ‘information’ if not from us.  Feel much more empowered about having and continuing conversations with our kids. If you can make one of thes (sessions) I highly recommend going.

The parent talk was very helpful so thank you so much for all the information. I definitely feel much more equipped to talk to the kids. As a parent of three and teacher I really got a lot out of the session and have recommended to my colleagues that our school should follow suit and book you. Thanks for the session I learned so much.

Module 1: The Foundation - This is mainly about you

In this module we go through some basic principles and underpinning concepts to make the most of your experience while inside the membership and to stay safe and happy while learning about the sensitive topic of sex and sexuality and how it relates to talking to kids. 
  • Who is Vanessa and her purpose of the membership
  • How it all works
  • Health and Safety First!!!
  • Key concepts in sexaulity education information, learning and sharing
  • Privacy is paramount
  • Self care and support

Module 2: The Why - This is where we get started with talking to kids

The 'why ' we need to talk to children about sex & sexuality,  so that you can give your child the greatest opportunity for a safe, happy and healthy sexuality journey over their lifetime.    
Even though ‘sex’ is not for kids human sexuality is. We will clear the reservations and uncertainty that prevents parents from talking with their kids. We clarify what kids learn at school versus what they need to learn at home. We cover all the reasons why parents find this so hard  and therefore often avoid it all together. 
  • Understanding that our sexuality is at the core of who we are
  • Human sexuality is a lifelong experience from birth to death
  • When we provide comprehensive, positive, age appropriate sexuality  information to children from an early age throughout their life, they have better outcomes over their lifetime
  • Sexuality information  from parents, keeps kids healthy happy and safe
  • Sexuality education and conversations are one of parent's greatest responsibilities for the health and safety and wellbeing of their kids 
  • You will have access to a 'go to' list of what is typical sexual behaviour, development 
  • How to approach this topic with positivity, confidence and even joy! How to avoid the  fear, dread, danger, shame and guilt approach.

Module 3: The What  - Perhaps that ‘sex ed’ you never received?

In this module we cover the 'what’ you need to tell your children.  What human sexuality topics & content and at what ages and stages. You’ll most likely say at the end of this module that you just received the sexuality education you missed out on while growing up.  
  • You will have a list of what is typical conversations content, for each age and stage of development
  • You will have a crash course in human sexuality topics
  • The need to know details of  puberty, reproduction, sexual function, diversity consent, respectful relationships
  • Global research and world health recommendations of what, you as a parent/carer, should tell your child to keep them  healthy and safe in their lifetime sexuality journey

Module 4: The How  - Step by step how to start and continue conversations with ease

If the idea of you being the parent that is super comfortable with talking about sex and sexuality whenever it comes up, seems impossible, this module is for you.  Proven fail safe ways to respond and answer questions that come up - while you stay cool as a cucumber. 
  • How your child will know to expect, and even enjoy, conversations with you 
  • How to be an askable parent 
  • How to be the main sexuality educator in your child's life
  • All the tips for awkward situations, like when questions come up at the supermarket checkout
  • The fail safe way to always respond positively even if you don't feel very positive
  • Tips for starting and then keeping the conversations going - even into the teen years
