Turn “The Talk” into a Conversation For Life.
“Where do babies come from?” This question can often raise fear in any parent.
Talking about it early can change your child’s sexual future. Talking about sex helps to keep your child as safe as possible and will create a bond between parent and child that will provide a source of support and love as your child grows into an adult.
It’s no surprise that many parents opt to keep sexual health information a secret. Many parents strive to protect their children from life’s reality and the reality of growing up. And so, children grow up hearing about sex from their peers and parents have little control over school yard talk and urban legends.
When left to discover sex without the proper knowledge and preparation, sex can become risky.
Parents need to matter more than peers. Talking about sex is more than just talking about the mechanics.
