For young people at school, sex and relationship education normally just means sex education.There’s a lot of emphasis on teaching the biological side, but not so much on the emotional elements – and these are crucial.Relationships should be nurturing and loving, and not involve constant critique of what you’re wearing and where you’re going.With Fixers, I want to help young people spot the signs of unhealthy behaviour early.Hopefully this will prevent any problems escalating into something more serious.
Here is a list of Fixers helping me with my Fix:
