Navigate sex & relationships

These resources have been specially curated to guide parents and carers to the most appropriate websites for young people in Out of Home Care in Australia.

Most topics include a video or website for parents/carers. The videos for young people are there for parents/carers to guide the young people to view.

Jenny Walsh of the Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health & Society at La Trobe University, Victoria, has written a guide to help parents and carers talk to their children about sex.

Talk soon. Talk often. was commissioned by the Western Australian Department of Health following research with young people that found there is a need for resources to support parents and families as sexuality educators of their children.

This downloadable guide is an excellent resource for parents and carers, and it provides a great deal of information around puberty and sexual health development.
