Your relationship worries

Growing up isn’t all boobs, hair and annoying emissions, obvs, and Not Your Mum also covers the feelings-based stuff. Family, friends and relationships are a massive part of your life, so we’ve made a playlist to answer your worries about all that stuff. Have we missed something? Tell us! Email We will NEVER reveal your name or email address in a video.

NOTE: This playlist includes videos about subjects, like sex, that you might not want to know about yet. You’re welcome to watch (there’s nothing gross in there), but feel free to wait a while too. The videos aren’t going anywhere.
