Participants' feedback
It exceeded my expectations, it made me look into myself first before I can engage my children as well, I loved that.  It answered all my questions."

I was literally in the wilderness regarding this topic.  Thank you for helping me  on my way to greater educated days."

Yes, it was brilliant. I am feeling more confident about having the chat with my daughter.  I have also learnt how important it is to speak about this, and see why I have grown up with a warped view of sex, as I was not educated about it.
