I agree with Dr Gail Dines, this 5 minute message to parents is a warning we all need to hear.
It's never to late to start conversations with your children about Healthy Sexuality, it is your responsibility to give them an alternative version of Human Sexuality to what they are currently learning from porn and our sexualised society.
Sex is not for children but you can start Human Sexuality and Respectful Relationship conversations with your toddlers about correct names for body parts, safe and unsafe touch and about consent i.e. when they are negotiating sharing toys with friends.
You can evolve these conversations over time to more age appropriate life lessons.
