The good, the bad and the ugly of sex is everywhere! It’s talked about by almost everyone, everywhere except the most important place where the conversation should be had – the home between parents and their children.
Children are becoming sexually aware and active from an increasingly young age. Being a curious generation, they are asking sex-related questions – what is pornography? When can I start dating? Do you and daddy or mummy have sex? What is sex? When can I start having sex?
Having these conversations can be awkward but the earlier we start talking to our children so that they get a balanced perspective of sex and are able to make responsible choices, the better.
Please start having age-appropriate conversations with your children. Trust me the awkwardness usually fades, and talking to your child about sex can actually become a great bonding opportunity.
