Simple ways to protect your child from peer pressure

Sure, the horrors of the holocaust do not compare with the body image, sexual, alcohol and drug use struggles faced by today’s teens and tweens. But psychologists argue that both situations result when ordinary people are under extraordinary pressure to conform to the norm.   In fact, nowadays, this pressure doesn’t need to be extraordinary. Any pressure whatsoever would drive a specific conforming behaviour.   Peer pressure arises from our deep-rooted human need to conform. It is not something kids suddenly learn in teenage years, but rather an innate evolutionary trait that is present from infancy.   When a child falls down, he looks up to the parents to gauge whether or not to cry. If mom reacts in fear, […]

Why you should start sexuality education early

Have you ever caught your 3-year-old touching his/her genitals during diaper changes or even in public?

How to Talk to your Adolescent about Consent and Rape

Reports of sexual assaults have dramatically increased in recent times. Statistics show that more than half of all rapes of females occur before they are age 18; 22% occur before they are 12.   Because children are more naive around this age, and child molesters are not always strangers, we cannot overemphasise the need to protect your child from molestation.   Although adolescents may not be engaging in sexual behaviours with each other, the beliefs and attitudes they develop in these formative years are what they will carry into adulthood. It will most likely affect how they treat people, how others treat them, and their choice of partners in the future.   This talk is the difference between a healthy […]
