Parents & Care-Givers
Consent Education believes that parents and care-givers know their children most intimately and are the experts for their own loved ones. We want to support you in this role.
There can be a community fear that the more we talk about sex, the more likely young people are to engage in it. Research suggests that this is not the case. By having open and honest conversations with children we allow them a healthy space to learn and grow as human beings in their sexuality.
Our online toolkit (coming soon) seeks to assist parents and care-givers in how to have this conversation and walk alongside your young person in their natural curiosity and development.
You may also want to check out our ‘Useful Resources’ below to help educate yourself so that you are equipped to support your loved ones.
