Mother talking to young son about her beliefs and values

Family Beliefs & Values

An important part of discussing sexual health with your child is sharing with them what you believe.  You’re likely the most important person in your child’s life. Ask yourself:

  • if your child actually knows what you believe
  • if you’ve really talked about your values about 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
  • really listen to each other
  • be honest
  • share the reasons for the things you believe
