'Ditching the Birds and the Bees'

...a community seminar on shame-free, confident and safe conversations about sex and bodies.

It can feel scary trying to navigate how to talk to our kids and young people about sex and ultimately how to keep them safe. Claire provides 1-2 hour seminars for parents/caregivers/teachers and other adults, supporting children, helping to build confidence in talking and supporting our children and young people aged infant - 13 years (with transferable skills for teens).
