On this episode of the Sexology Podcast we cover how to talk to your child about sex. Most people know they need to talk to their kids, but they don’t know how to go about it or what to say. What is appropriate and helpful to say?
Most people didn’t receive the necessary information about sex from their parents. During this episode we are going to talk about exactly what to say, how to say it and what to do if you catch your kids in the midst of a sexual act.
The first step is talk to your partner about your values and what you’re hoping your child has as they grow up. That way you can clearly communicate values to your children. Someone’s values will be transferred down to your children, especially about sex. Children can be very curious. It’s important to educate them and avoid shaming them.
