WORKSHOPS FOR

PARENTS

For Parents of kids of all ages

These workshops focus on safety and abuse prevention. We can reduce the incidences of sexual abuse by teaching children to name their private body parts, helping them to identify the differences between safe, unsafe and secret touch, and supporting them to express a variety of emotions. These foundational skills make the world a safer place for children.

How to Talk to Your Kids About Pornography

For: Parents and Professionals

Description:

It is not a question if your child/children will view pornography, it is a question of when.

 

Schools and families must intentionally filter out inappropriate sexual images so that they are not viewed by children. Nearly 50% of children who see pornography by accident say they can't forget that first image.

 

According to a 2018 study in NZ (Youth and Porn) 25% of kids under age 12 have accessed pornography. The largest group of viewers of internet pornography is children aged 12-17. The biggest problem with our kids seeing pornography isn't that it's about sex, but that it's about unrealistic sex.  

 

Want to learn more about the long-term impacts of pornography viewing?
