Many experts agree that talking to kids about sex can be daunting, but it is a necessary part of their education.
Research shows us that kids and teens who have regular conversations with their parents and caregivers about sex and relationships are less likely to take risks with their sexual health and more likely to be healthy and safe. Here are ways you can address your children about sex.
Sex education could begin anytime
Children ask a lot of questions. So, let their questions determine the number of answers you will give them on a particular topic. Don’t choke them with information if they don’t ask. A perfect way to begin to teach sex education to children was to tell them the proper names for the different parts of their bodies.
Avoid giggling, laughing, when children ask questions about their bodies
Take the questions at face value and offer direct, age-appropriate responses because if your child wants to know more, he or she will ask. Parents must monitor their children including toddlers for genital stimulation.
Children must be taught that no one was allowed to touch their private parts
Making them know that nobody is allowed to touch their private parts will make them aware of the privacy of the so-called private parts. As parents, if you think these children don’t listen, try to break the rule you set and see how they will scream, telling you to stop touching their private parts.
Give Them Sex Education At Home
Make sure your kid is not learning about sex from another source. If they are not asking you and you are not talking about sex to them, they are certainly talking about it with someone else
