Summary Collett Smart is a psychologist, teacher, lecturer, writer - and a mum of three. She knows professionally and personally that it is crucial for parents to address difficult yet fundamentally important topics with their children - and this book tells them why and how. Parents who feel like they just don't know how to talk to their children about some of the most difficult topics facing today's young people - pornography, misogyny and harassment, objectification and body image - will have all the tools they need after they read this book. And it's not just the difficult subjects: Collett also looks at emotional intelligence, empathy, respect and manners. This is the must-have book for parents of young people who want to keep their children safe, whole and happy.
