* Speaking to your child about racism, sexism and homophobia/transphobia
* Speaking to your child about diet, body care and body positivity
* Screen time and social media usage - how their online life impacts children today

* How to encourage good mental health and support children with common emotional issues (including climate change anxiety)
* Friendships and peer pressure - their impact and how to help if they go wrong, or are toxic. Encouraging individuality and coping with comparison.
