This course will help you create a style of communication with your children, so that they feel safer telling you about what is going on in their life.

Get rid of the stigma

Casey's course worked for us

Thanks to Casey's course, we have created a culture at home where it is normal for our kids to accurately name their genitals, just as they would any other body part. We have worked on getting rid of the makes a difference when they speak their truth, it means we can hear it clearly. Book time with Casey to talk to her about it, she makes it so much easier to get rid of the stigma.
