Prepare for a compelling exploration of the controversy surrounding the book, "Welcome to Sex".

In a stimulating discussion with Karen Keavy, an authority on child sexual abuse, we peel back the layers of this provocative publication, addressing the misunderstood aspects and upping the ante as we consider the possibility of creating age-appropriate sections.

This is your chance to navigate the tricky waters of sexualisation versus education in a supportive environment.

Then we shift gears and zero in on the crucial role of schools in addressing sexual abuse.

With the looming danger of online pornography and the overwhelming responsibility of parents in setting boundaries, it's a conversation that is crucial for the safety of our children.

Listen in as Karen and Ron Fielder from Podcast City aim to create a haven for children to express their thoughts without fear while emphasizing the potential dangers of not educating them about sex and the possible implications on their mental health.

Lastly, we confront the implications of inappropriate online content on children, and the paramount responsibilities of parents and the education system in providing age-appropriate sex education.

We also discuss strategies to fortify children against sexual abuse and stress the necessity of open dialogue.

To round things off, we delve into the advantages of online parent sessions as a potent tool for guidance in keeping children safe.

This is an indispensable conversation for any parent, educator, or anyone committed to the well-being of our children.

Join us for this enlightening journey.
