00:22:11 Live Q&A session
  • We have a 12 year old boy and a 10 year old girl. Should mummy talk to the girl and daddy talk to the boy? Or is it beneficial for both parents to talk to both our kids?
  • I am a single mom, can I talk about sex with my son? How do I do that?
  • What are the ‘must address’ issues with a 3 year old young child?
  • My 5 year old son likes to touch his private part sometimes. He said it feels nice. How should I tell him it’s not right?
  • What if my daughter aged 14 comes up to me and said that she has messed up. How should I respond? What should I not do or say?
  • How do I respond to my 12 year old child talking about her friend liking this and that boy? Should we play along and be involved in the conversation as a friend?
  • My daughter aged 14, knows I don’t approve her being involved in a relationship with a boy. However she continues to have relationship and often change boyfriend. Her rebellious age is quite worrying.
  • We have young daughters. My question is about genital area. What do you think about washing their private parts by daddy? Until what age would you recommend not to touch them or help them?
