Essential listening

An invaluable tool in navigating what can be a tricky, sensitive and sometimes embarrassing conversation with your children. Vanesa offers a down to earth approach and gives some useful everyday tips that are so important when discussing sexuality. These are conversations that parents should be having regularly with their children in order to expose them to what sexuality and sexual relationships should be like, which is not like the images and messages they get from the internet etc.
Vanesa really helps set the tone and provides great practical information.
