Sexual Education Matters

I wanted to share this article as it highlighted some really disturbing facts around how our daughters are dealing with sexual pressure from boys. It is shameful that online sexual abuse and harassment have become everyday interactions, a by product of our digital, everything so readily accessible age.

The questions is, what can we do to protect our daughters and empower them with the right information and techniques to cope with an issue that is unlikely to be resolved?

It starts in the home, with mothers and fathers having open, honest conversations about positive sexual wellness and what is acceptable and what is not. It's about teaching our daughters, at an age appropriate, that sexual experiences are also about pleasure for the women and that their bodies are owned by them. They must be respected. The boys use sex for power, we need to help our daughers understand they have the power.
