About the event

The Internet and portable electronic devices has transformed the way pornography is accessed and how pornography accesses children. Children are growing up in a world where it’s impossible to avoid sexualised media and pornography. Whilst pornography is not new, the nature and accessibility of pornography has changed considerably. Children with access to the Internet on any device - at home, at a friend’s place, at school or in any of our community spaces are at risk of exposure. 

It’s not a matter of ‘if’ a child will see pornography but ‘when’ and the when is getting younger and younger. In Australia, the age of first exposure is being reported as between 8 and 10 years of age.

It's never too early to begin proactive and protective conversation and education. This parent/carer workshop has been developed to support parents/carers talk, in age and developmentally appropriate ways, with their child about pornography. 

You will leave this workshop with research and evidence-based up-to-date information, conversation starters, practical strategies and resource recommendations.
