Are you…

Hesitant to start explaining the differences to your child, between male and female bodies?

Disillusioned that other books about the human body don’t include the genitals (yet again) or fail to be representative of diversity in gender and bodies?

Frustrated when your child is adamant that ‘boys can’t have long hair’ and ‘girls can’t be a pirate’, even though you tell them they can?

Embarrassed because you feel uncomfortable with starting conversations about penises and vulvas?

Struggling to find new ways to start conversations about bodies and gender that feel more natural and less awkward?

The Play & Learn PaperDoll Friends are the perfect resource for parents & kids

These anatomically-correct PaperDolls provide kids with the perfect opportunity to learn as they cut, colour and play.


Who am I to be teaching you this?

Hi, I’m Cath Hakanson and when gifts were being handed out by the 3 fairies (you know, the ones from Sleeping Beauty), I was given the gift of being able to comfortably talk about sex.

I have a string of qualifications longer than your arm, over 25 years of clinical expertise under my well-worn belt, and have helped thousands of parents along the way.

When it comes to sex education, I’ve worn many hats: nurse, clinician, educator, counsellor, therapist, consultant, researcher, author and parent.

My friends call me a sexpert, but to my kids, I’m just a mum who talks about sex.

Yes, I do talk about sex a lot, but in ways that strengthen relationships between parents and their children. I love helping other parents to feel comfortable about having these conversations with their kids too.

I’ve spent the last 10 years getting up close and personal with the stuff that gets in the way of parents talking to their kids about sex.

Bottomline… I help parents have the kind of relationships with their kids they really want to have.

Relationships that are safe, shame-free, secure and special.
