But it is just too embarrassing...

Yep, I agree! A lot of the things we talk about in sex education is a sensitive topic and it isn’t uncommon to feel shame around it.

But the more that you talk about these things, the easier it gets. Plus the Masterclass includes some ideas on how to get past the embarrassment of talking about these things with kids.

Thank goodness for Cath at SexEd Rescue

Cath has provided invaluable insight & signposting for a really tricky situation! I’d be a hysterical hot mess without her guidance & support. I am so grateful for her work in this field!
Buy the course. It’s money well spent.
There’s a clue in the name, “SexEd rescue”. Cath really is the SexEd safety net for bewildered patents.

Helpful information, but inconsistent in one major area.

I found the masterclass to be thorough and centered on developing a healthy sense of autonomy and self-exploration for children. One aspect that was confusing was that Cath repeatedly went over the importance of kids understanding that masturbation is something that they must only do in private- which I agree, is critical- yet she also said that kids masturbating with each other is totally normal and "okay" so long as they aren't touching each other. While curiosity and exploration might be developmentally expected, children need clear and consistent boundaries around privacy so that they are not vulnerable to sexual abuse by peers or adults.

Hi Ariel, and thanks for bringing that up! I have gone back into the Masterclass and have found what you are referring to.
There is a section (WHO masturbates and how this behaviour changes as your child grows up - What is developmentally appropriate behaviour?) that talks about the sexual behaviours a child may display as they grow up.
I have used a European tool and they explain that children may want to masturbate with others, and if they do it is seen as being developmentally approriate behaviour, as long as they are only masturbating themselves and not touching other people's penises.
So... this is where it starts to get confusing, as just because a behaviour is seen as being age-appropriate, it doesn't mean that we let them keep on doing it. We would discourage it and ensure they know it is a private thing (not public).
I'll jump into the Masterclass and add a note into this section of the readable notes.
I hope this makes sense! Cheers, Cath

Excellent advice from an expert

I loved Cath’s class because it gave me permission to lean into my instincts and relax around some of the things that were coming up in my household. I also greatly appreciated how much explicit attention Cath gave to neurodivergent children. She even provided more resources to follow up with if I chose to (which I did). Her class had made my life much easier. Very accessible in many different formats and I can easily share with my husband. Thank you, Cath!

Let the fun times begin!

I purchased this resource to educate myself after my 5 yo discovered that shower stream feels nice down there. The next day the conversation was so easy for me, I knew what to say and how much detail to give. Cath’s language is accessible down to earth Aussie, I felt like I was sitting across her talking about it.
I’ve purchased other items from her store and
reading/watching them felt more at ease with the most difficult conversations around sex and bodies. I would recommend Cath and her knowledge for anyone wanting to provide their children with the right/accessible information so they can thrive in life confident in their bodies and loving themselves. Thank you Cath. You’ve made my job as a mum much easier.
