  • Do I have to worry if my child is ashamed? "How is that with shame"?

    To worry about somebody is not good, not to you and also to your children. Shame is part of life. Everyone feels shame in very different shaman delights. In the case of great shame, brain functions which, for example, control speech and moral consciousness, are eliminated. The so-called "reptile brain" now accepts the announcements. As a result, your children can often not think or speak clearly when they consume or are caught by pornography; Instead, dominate physical responses such as blushing, sweating, turning the eye away etc. Their greatest goal is to escape this condition.

With every conversation search on sexuality, you are moving around the pubic border. That's why we have developed access aids that will not increase your as well as your child's shame.
