We're joined this week by David Kesterton, parenting expert and project manager of the Speakeasy programme at the FPA - Family Planning Association, who's going to be answering questions on talking to your children and your teenagers about sex and relationships.

Speakeasy is an award-winning project designed by FPA to help parents and carers face those difficult conversations and awkward questions from children about sex and relationships with confidence, knowledge and new found skills. Speakeasy courses are held all over the country at schools, community and health centres.

David is project manager for the Speakeasy programme at FPA and has spoken extensively about the important of the role of parents in sex and relationships education.

If you have any questions about how, why and when you should talk to your children about sex, please post by the end of Friday 27 May and we'll be linking to his answers the following week.

Swallowed a fly - what a good idea! Treating children like little people, instead of future people. Hmmm, novel.
