After talking with some students today, it really hit me. Kids want to talk to there parents about sex. But do parents want to talk to their kids about sex? Sure you do! The question is “how”. It is a big step and a very rewarding one to take. www.4parents.gov is a site for you to use as a resource from the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services. It has a lot of helpful tips and plenty of solid information for you to get the conversation started.
Now there is one more thing here. Once you get the conversation started, Don’t Stop! It’s not just having “the talk”. It’s talking, a lot. Hopefully through your new conversations you will begin to experience a new intimacy with your kids that will grow and strengthen your relationship to a new level!
