Psychologist Warren Cann talks with 3RRR radio host Jacinta Parsons about how parents can speak to their children about sex and sexuality.
Openness is important when communicating with your child about sex. Warren talks about how to be an ‘askable’ parent, and how to find out what your child already knows about the topic. Research shows that open discussion about sex and sexuality tends to delay sexual activity, rather than speeding it up. Warren suggests parents might actively seek opportunities to discuss sexuality, and offers tips for helping your child achieve a healthy sexual identity.
