Teens don’t want to talk about sex with their family, or do they? Don’t let the eye-rolls and yucky faces fool you…research shows they do! Most teens wish their parents and caregivers talked with them more about sexuality-related topics.
So, what are you supposed to do? You want them to hear what you have to say, and they want the information. But the more you talk, the less they listen!
Sexuality educators agree the best way to teach kids and teens about sex and sexuality is to have lots of little conversations…before they’re ready to have sex.
Most of us grew up in households with little to no sexuality education. It’s understandable…we live in a sex-negative culture.
These days, we’re all being bombarded with massive amounts of misinformation. We can’t afford to avoid these conversations anymore.
How many kids (and adults) have to suffer from sexual shame and confusion? How many relationships have to fail because we’re afraid to talk about sex? Do you really want your kid learning about sex from porn stars?
