By Craig Pomranz

If you happen to have a little Raffi at home – a boy who finds rough and tumble overwhelming – this gentle and charming story could work wonders. But it’s also perfect for teaching difference and acceptance to the most regular of Joes. Our little tester loved the detail and said: “I wish Raffi would make me a cape!”

WHAT CAN WE LEARN FROM YOUNG PEOPLE’S VIEWS ON ONLINE SEXUAL HARM & RISKS?

New research with 10- to 20-year-olds shows that their online lives can be tricky but that it can help to talk openly with their parents about negative experiences. Read young people’s remarks here and the main story here >

WHY DO I NEED OUTSPOKEN?

Children want parents and school to be their top two sources of information about sex and relationships (according to the Sex Education Forum).

Parents have been called the missing link in their children’s sex and relationships learning. But talking openly with our children doesn’t always come naturally.

Outspoken helps parents to be prepared for and more comfortable about having straightforward conversations. Talking openly can improve…

Help your child become a critical thinker so that they build up resilience and make good decisions in this

digital world

WHAT OTHERS HAVE SAID

“We’re all trying to figure out how to talk to our children about tricky stuff, and I’m turning to Outspoken for a few tips”

Mother Pukka founder Anna Whitehouse

“The best support and protection parents can offer young people is ensuring they have all the information they need to make decisions about their health, body, sexual exploration and emotions – which is what Outspoken is all about”

Sara Pascoe – Comedian, author and member of Outspoken Advisory Board

“As a parent I felt enabled and empowered to have age-and-stage appropriate conversations with my children after the Outspoken Sex Ed workshop. This suddenly felt like a challenge I could take on with gusto rather than shying away from”

Dr Pooky Knightsmith –Children and Young People’s Mental Health Coalition vice chair & education lead

“This is wonderful work and very much needed”

Dr Naomi Sutton – Sexual-health consultant physician on E4’s The Sex Clinic and at Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust

Incredibly helpful. I feel much better equipped to deal with what I thought would be awkward conversations – actually I don’t think they are at all!
