(un)comfortable conversations

Need-to-know: a guide to help Muslim parents have important discussions with their children

Publication date November 2023

A guide to support Muslim families to help keep children safe by making uncomfortable conversations feel comfortable.

Whether it’s talking about puberty, relationships, boundaries or something else, there can be some topics that might feel hard to talk about with your child.

It’s OK to feel uncomfortable at first about having these conversations. Whatever the subject or the age of your child, there are lots of ways to make it easier for you both.

We have advice to help you decide how to talk to your child in a way that’s age-appropriate, culturally sensitive and supportive.
