Sex Ed? an Observation?
I have observed that there are an unbelievable amount of questions on here that have to do with Sex, Periods, Orgasms, personal hygiene……
It makes me believe that sex ed in the US is virtually non-existent!
Don’t you think as parents we have a responsibility to tell our children about these things?
Without getting into too much detail, we can explain to our daughter that if they miss a period and have had sex, they might be pregnant.
We can tell our sons how to respect women in bed…
We can teach our children how to properly clean ALL areas of their body…..
If we are parents… we’ve probably had sex and know how it is supposed to work (and mostly what doesn’t work)
Why are parents so uptight and frightened to talk to their children about things that obviously weigh heavily on their minds?
What’s your take?
I think lots of parents don’t provide an environment where the kid feels safe asking these questions – or they are embarrassing questions to the kids & they don’t want the parents know they are thinking about this stuff. It is sad that our kids are scared to come to us – but at least now there are forums for them to ask & they will hopefully get more right answers than wrong ones. We need to start talking to our kids early in simple terms & let them know they can come to us w/anything & we will be there to listen & help.
