It's a problem as old as time. Your child has a friend with an older sibling who knows more than they should, and this becomes an issue for your family when you're faced with 'the others are doing it'.

Help! My Child Is Being Influenced By Someone Older

00:00:00 / 00:00:00

We recently got this text in from a listener:

Hi lads, I have an 8 year-old daughter, she's a really nice, shy kid but she tends to be easily influenced by others. She hangs around in the front of the house with a group of girls her own age. However, one of the girls has a much older sibling who seems to tell her things that aren't suitable. She's then telling her friends, including my little one. Now I'm being faced with awkward questions around relationships and sex, and she's also looking to watch things which aren't way too old for her because 'the others are'. How do I tackle this? I don't want to ostricise her from her friends, but I also can't let this continue”
