Family Beliefs & Values

An important part of discussing sexual health with your child is sharing with them what you believe. You are an extremely important person in your child’s life. Ask yourself:

  • Does your child actually know what you believe?
  • Have you really discussed your values about sexuality as a family?

The following may give you some things to think and talk about as a family. When you have a discussion, remember to:

  • choose a quiet time when nobody is feeling rushed
  • treat each other with respect
  • really listen to each other
  • be honest
  • share the reasons for the things you believe
