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!

What parents are saying

“This group has been helpful by opening my mind to the types of questions my children might have about sex and sexuality! I love how inclusive it is.” Kaitlee

“The recommendations from other parents make me feel less different or like my ‘problems’ are ‘normal’. Book recommendations have been life savers, and suggestions on how to interact with my kiddos and seeing others going through the same things, etc has all given me major peace of mind. The conversation has never been more open and comfortable with my daughter, and I’m so grateful I found it (the group)!” Brianna

“Growing up in the 80s and 90s and raised with moderately conservative parents puts even the most open-minded and educated parents at a disadvantage when trying to raise self-confident, self-aware, safe and well-versed children when it comes to sexual health. I have learned so much and I have found a safe space to ask any questions I need to ask and get input from other parents as well. This has been one of my greatest resources in my attempt to raise my awesome kid into a great person.” Katie

“I have learned how to include inclusive language when having these talks with my kids. I didn’t realize how ingrained my use of pronouns was until having these talks.” Jody

About Cath

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, two 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!
