Have you noticed that your children seem to be growing up too fast?
That they are worried about their appearance and more aware of sexual issues at earlier stages?
Melinda Tankard Reist, an Australian activist at the forefront of helping educate the public on the link between pornography and violence, is bringing her message to Tauranga for a 90-minute presentation to parents, teachers and educators
Tankard Reist is in demand as a speaker internationally, addressing thousands of young people each year in schools and youth events, parent groups, professional development courses, and international organisations. She is also a well-known author, media commentator, blogger and part of the grassroots campaign movement, Collective Shout: for a world free of sexploitation
Drawing from current global literature on the subject, Melinda will explore with participants how the proliferation of sexualized images and messages contributes to a distorted view of bodies, relationships and sexuality in young people, hampering their healthy physical emotional and social development. She will also cover how participants can address this toxic culture and raise happy, healthy and resilient kids.
