Mother talking to young son about her beliefs and values

Family Beliefs & Values

It’s important to talk about what you believe about sexual health with your kids. You’re likely the most important person in your child’s life. Ask yourself:

  • does your child know what you believe?
  • have you talked about your values related to sexuality as a family?

When you do talk to your child, remember to:

  • choose a quiet time when nobody is feeling rushed
  • treat each other with respect (e.g., make sure your tone of voice is warm and respectful)
  • listen closely to each other
  • be honest
  • share the reasons for the things you believe
