WAYS TO TALK TO YOUR CHILDREN ABOUT SEX
Discussion about SEXUAL RESPONSIBILTY
Giving some type of information ie:books, pamphlets
Using correct terms
Being open about sex and any questions that the children have.
Don't tell your children sex is bad, but inform them about the risks and that protecting themselves is important.
WHAT AGE IS APPROPRIATE?
Early childhood: they begin to explore their bodies; avoid any negative remarks towards this."We do that in private"
Middle to late childhood: This is a good time to explain the parts of the body and how they work with the correct terms. (girls should be taught about mestruation at this time).
Adolescence: At this time, the adolescent will have questions about sex, so try to be as open and informational as possible.--Try to inform them about SEXUAL DECISION MAKING, safe sex, and how to protect themselves once they engage in sexual acts.
*Early teens is a good time to let your children know MASTURBATION is normal.
Middle to late teens: At this time being open and non-judmental is crucial. It's important to have deeper discussions about pregnancy, STD's, and protection. ie: birth control pills, condoms, female condoms, spermicides.
