" that parent group "

An online space for parents needing encouragement with sex education

WELCOME to "that parent group”!  

I’m so excited that you’re thinking of joining us!

This is an online space for parents who are looking for encouragement with sex education.

For parents who want to encourage, support and INSPIRE each other.

A place to figure out what sex education might look like.

“that parent group” is a FREE Facebook group for parents who are looking for encouragement & support with sex education. It is for parents who want to follow the approach that Sex Ed Rescue takes i.e. open and honest conversations that strengthen your relationship with your child.

Because here’s the thing: We have strict rules so that we can keep this group a safe (and judgement free) space. If you break the rules, you’re out.

If you like the sound of what we do, hit "request group", fill out your 3 questions, accept the rules and introduce yourself to the community so we can all get to know you better.

Oh, and if you can’t be bothered to answer the questions and to accept the rules, then you probably aren’t a good fit for this group!

Cath Hakanson

Cath Hakanson has been talking to clients about sex for the past 25 years as a nurse, midwife, sex therapist, researcher, author and educator. She’s spent the past 15 years trying to unravel why parents (herself included) struggle with sex education. Her solution was to create Sex Ed Rescue, an online resource for parents looking for a better way to talk about sex so they can empower their child to make smart sexual decisions. 

Cath has lived all over Australia but currently lives in Perth with her partner, 2 children, and ever-growing menagerie of pets. Despite having an unusual profession, she bakes, sews, and knits for sanity, collects sexual trivia, and tries really hard not to embarrass her children in public. Well, most of the time anyway!​​​​
