An article on mandating the HPV vaccination and does it mean good/bad things for our kids.
Giving condoms like candy: an article documenting whether this really promotes promiscuity.
What ages should we talk to our kids about sex and when is it too late?
Today Paul and I discuss the topic of talking to our kids about sex. A recent article we dug up discussed whether or not we should give teens the HPV vaccination. Paul found a fascinating article on giving condoms to teens and we discuss what we do as parents.
We also cover having that sometimes difficult conversation with our kiddos about sex, and how to make that conversation a breeze!
- Have a relationship with your kid as early as possible so this conversation flows easily.
- Get familiar with the words penis and vagina, just to try and say them without blushing or giggling.
- Let your kids know what you feel about the different stages of intimacy from holding hands, to fondling, and even anal sex and intercourse. I know, it makes me squirm to type this, but we need to be the ones to educate our kids. Not a curriculum, and definitely not Johnny Hasnoclue from school.
