Why we need to start talking to our kids about sex now

Feed Play Love host Shevonne Hunt with author Collett Smart and her book They'll Be OK

Most parents today did not have the internet when they were very small, but they know that the internet is a big wide world when it comes to our kids. Particularly when it comes to exposure to pornography.

Psychologist Collett Smart says information is power – as long as it’s age appropriate. In this episode, she explains how we can start talking about sex with our young children, and why it’s so important we start having difficult conversations now.
