Ignorance is not Innocence: Why talk about sexuality, sexualisation, sexual behaviours and prevention of sexual abuse in our classrooms?

Holly Brennan

Two open public discourse on perceived controversial topics is presented as polarised along the “for or against” continuum. This makes for entertaining debate, but doesn’t really help build practice or protect the most vulnerable. This is seen in the arena of children and sexuality. The overwhelming majority of people want children to be safe; however there remain significant myths about what it means to protect children in this area.
