Reasons why Parents Should Teach Their Kids about Sex-Related Issues.
In the old days when the world was not as enlightened as it is today, education about sex was delayed until you reached your teen years. Nowadays with the changed world even the juniors can easily find sex information. Because of this change we must all concur that new ways need to used to deal with this change. Information about sex is something that holds a lot of importance, and yet people are not willing to address it. The embarrassment of talking about sex is still there.
In the past centuries parents waited for the first signs of adolescence before they could discuss sex with their kids. Nowadays kids are impatient to know much about sex that you can be left wondering if they were born knowing sex.
Today, what a person knew at their twenties is known by a child below the age of ten. Kids learn a lot from their first source of information. You will be doing a lot of harm if you leave you to leave your kids to be trained about the matters of sexuality by the media, friends or the people around them. Starting early in child sex education guarantees better results than the converse.
It is very important not to ignore the sex-related questions from your child. Kids have the character of being interrogative. Children look for something to occupy their minds, and they approach elders for information and directions. Parents are always shocked when their kids first pose sex questions to them. Many adults will bar their children from asking such questions or even be harsh on them for asking questions related to sex. It is a mentality even to the community that any discussion related to sexuality is unethical which is wrong thinking.
The answer you give to your kid matters a lot. Never give your kid an answer that shuts them up or for the sake of answering. Respond confidently with the appropriate answers . If you begin sex education to your kids early enough, they will not find it hard to approach you for help during adolescence. This is because discussing these things will be normal between you and your child.
Ensure that your life is emulable to your children. Ensure that your teachings match your lifestyle. This gives them the confidence in applying what you teach them. Remember they look up to you and are influenced more by what you do than what you teach
