"As someone who grew up in a household tinged by the consequences of sexual abuse, discovering the Kula app has been a revelation and a source of immense hope.This app, aimed at empowering and educating parents about preventing sexual abuse in children, resonates deeply with me due to my family's history.

My parents, both victims of abuse, inadvertently instilled more fear than education in me regarding sexuality. This not only affected my perception but also made me anxious about how to approach this subject with my own child. Kula stands out as a transformative tool, breaking these cycles of fear and misinformation.

The app is user-friendly and addresses sensitive topics with an appropriate balance of seriousness and understanding. Kula is providing me with monthly valuable insights and tools, to educate and protect my child in a healthy, informed manner." - Annie, mom to 8 year old girl

"Kula is an indispensable tool in a world still grappling with misogyny. This app educates parents and children on preventing sexual abuse, challenging gender stereotypes and promoting respect for all genders. It empowers users to recognize and confront abuse, a crucial step in a society where females often face marginalization. Kula's focus on consent, boundaries, and equality is a powerful counter to misogynistic attitudes, fostering healthier interactions and awareness." - Parent in Canada

"Parenting can be overwhelming and often times, I find myself worrying about how I am going to handle things in the future. Kula has helped me center my focus on the issues/milestones my kids are facing right now, at the age they are at, rather than worrying about how I will handle issues they will have two years from now. Kula has also brought forth important topics to be mindful of that I would have never have thought of myself." - Margot, mom to two boys
