The Re:Set Guide to Talking to Your Kids About Consent and Boundaries

A breakdown of how to have age-appropriate conversations around sexual health at every stage

Research states that one in ten children will be sexually abused before their 18th birthday. As a parent, you can address this by opening up channels of communication with your children, explaining consent and boundaries from a young age, and building a relationship where they can trust you wholeheartedly. When it comes to sparking conversations about sexual danger, most parents revert to the talk about “stranger danger” when in fact, 90% of sexually abused children in the U.K. were assaulted by someone they knew. With this guide, you can spark age-appropriate talking points for every developmental stage and help your child navigate through these complicated concepts in a simplified manner.
