Helping Children In Rainbow Families To Stay Safe I Karen Craigie
Speaking to children about how to protect their body & their privacy can be an uncomfortable conversation for parents & children. However, it is an incredibly important conversation to have. In Australia, state & territory governments have the statutory responsibility for protecting children from child abuse & neglect. However as there are separate jurisdictions between each state & territory this can result in some children "falling through the cracks”. Today, in particular we are specifically addressing children living in Rainbow Families (defined as any family with children in which there is one or more LGBTIQA+ parents) as one such demographic. Today we speak with Karen Craigie, Prosper (Project Australia)’s Executive Director. Prosper (Project Australia) is a multi-award-winning community organisation founded to support disadvantaged children & their families; at home, at school & in the community. Karen will speak about the unique Gap in child safety programming she had identified & how it has been addressed with a tailored protective behaviours program developed especially for children living in Rainbow Families. We ask Karen questions including: How do Rainbow families face additional complexities in child safety, can you provide examples? What other challenges do children from Rainbow Families face? How are those complexities & issues not typically covered in traditional child protection programming? Why do you think it is important for parents to discuss child protection at home? Where do parents start? What are some simple protective behaviours strategies that parents can teach their children? How has Prosper made it easier for parents to have open discussions on this topic?

Nutrition And How Vit D Can Help Combat COVID I Sarah Smith
The COVID-19 era we are living through has seen us more informed and concerned about our health and well being than any other time in recent history. With good reason, we now live our lives each day taking precautionary measures to protect ourselves and loved ones against contracting COVID Today we are going to discuss 2 topics relating to COVID Firstly, nutrition and how the use of vitamin D can help to combat Covid-19. Secondly, the detection of Covid 19 in sewerage and what that means To discuss we welcome our special guest Sarah Smith, Dietitian from Bayside Dietetics. Sarah works in private a practice in Bayside Melbourne after working for an extensive period within a Monash Children’s Hospital. Today she is going to discuss the benefits of Vitamin D and also link between our poo, waste water and COVID-19. I know what you’re thinking, but stick with me on this one. We ask Sarah questions including: What is the key (nutritional) thing we can do to help reduce our risk with Covid-19? I believe there has been a recent study in Spain that supports some of these results, can you explain what those results are? Is it worth supplementing with vitamin D to reduce my risk? Do you think there could be any link between this and the struggles that Melbourne has had with COVID? How can we ensure we’re getting enough sun exposure for adequate vitamin D levels while being Sun Smart? In your second article you speak at the wonders of the gut. You mention that there are scientists in Brisbane that have made a cleaver discovery but what is all this about Covid-19 in the sewerage? Can you please explain what this discovery is? You speak a lot about bugs and their relation to our lives, can you expand on this? How do bugs help our digestive system? How do the by-products keep us healthy then?
