Talk to me First | Parent-only webinar

Join our live information evening, Talk to me First, especially for parents and caregivers of children in primary school years 3-6.

This webinar is designed to support you to have important conversations about reproduction, puberty, body safety, consent and online risks for young people (like viewing pornography).

Like us, you probably want your approach to these topics to be different to what you grew up with. You also know these important talks need to happen before the influence of google and/or your children’s peers.

What you’ll learn

  • How to talk about bodies
  • How to explain conception, sexual intercourse and assisted reproduction
  • How to talk about the changes of puberty
  • How to talk about consent
  • Why we need to talk about pornography and how we can do it in a way that doesn’t scare children

Cost: $15 + GST

Monday 29 August

7pm–8pm AEST

Talk to me First complements Let’s Learn Together – where both parents/caregivers and children attend a one hour live webinar together.

Talk for parents of primary-aged children

A fantastic, informative evening filled with great practical advice delivered with compassion and humour. Highly worth attending for anyone who wants to raise resilient, informed, confident kids who feel comfortable asking questions and handling issues relating to their bodies, friendships and other complex issues faced by kids today.

Wonderfully explained and presented. The SEA presenter had a great style – warm, knowledgeable, practical and supportive. The emphasis on family and school partnerships really resonated. I really enjoyed it. Thanks.

Awesome presentation. For an awkward topic you managed to make it fun and non-confrontational. I learnt a lot and it gave me so many ideas to start and manage conversations that may come. Well worth coming.

Seminar for secondary parents

As a mother of older teens (16 and 17), I went along to the “Talk to me first” session presented by SEA, thinking the horse had probably already bolted! The facilitator had an entertaining and approachable presentation style that helped put into context a lot of things my kids are dealing with in terms of their sexuality and the messages they receive through social media and other forums. But this wasn’t about scaring parents! SEA offered practical strategies for engaging kids and looking for “teachable moments” which I have definitely put into practice. I would recommend a SEA parent seminar to anyone with responsibility for children – it’s never too early or too late to access the latest thinking on this very important issue.
