Let’s Talk About Sex
Parents often tell their children not to have sex before they’re ready, but tell the same old birds and bees story that their older siblings sat through. It’s awkward. It’s embarrassing. It’s… not a great way to prevent sexual experiences. Parents often describe the dangers of sex to their children, but they rarely discuss what to do in certain situations or how to maintain a healthy sexual relationship . By opening up positive discussion about love and lust relationships, there is a supportive environment that will assure the teen (and the parent as well, in the long run) that they are making healthy decisions in their life (advocatesforyouth.org).
