Today, to be a parent it's not good enough to do the old-fashioned sex ed, which most people haven't done.

Dr Eve, clinical sexologist

You as a parent have got an obligation and responsibility to expand yourself in a creative way to be including these points of discussion with your children when you are talking to them about intimacy, their bodies, their sexuality and their sexual health.

Dr Eve, clinical sexologist

Parents have to step back and do the work of finding comfortability, tolerance, education and support groups for themselves while supporting their children.

Dr Eve, clinical sexologist

If you deny, negate, punish or criminalise, the children will suffer in terms of their mental health later in life.

Dr Eve, clinical sexologist

Callers phoned in about raising transgender children, teaching them about sex and their own experiences of growing up.
