    Navigating a sexed-up world: How can we help our young people resist harmful messages from media and pop culture and aspire them to have respectful relationships?

    Parents are noticing children are growing up too fast, are worried about their appearance and more aware of sexual issues at earlier ages. Children and young people are bombarded with hypersexualised messages from media and popular culture. The lives of young people are increasingly socialised, conditioned, and informed by exposure to online porn before their first kiss.

    Drawing from current global literature and the experiences of young people, Melinda and Daniel will explore how the proliferation of sexualised images and messages contributes to a distorted view of bodies, relationships, and sexuality and how this can hamper their physical, emotional, and social development. They assist parents in addressing this toxic culture and provide practical tips on raising happy, healthy, and resilient young people.
