Sex is a big deal to kids from ages 7 +. That's right. I said 7. Kids are learning about it from sources that are not us (their parents). So, do you now or do you plan on having the talk about sex with your children? What will/do you tell them? Will you preach abstinence as the only way, or will you give alternatives (teaching safe sex)? Will this be from your religious perspective or life perspective?Answer Question

My 12 year old was pretty much oblivious until he started middle school. We are very open with each other and he feels very comfortable coming to me with anything he hears and questions.

The body, procreation, and physical pleasure have always been topics I discussed with my daughter, from a very early age. Children become aware of their bodies as toddlers, then they become aware of the fact that different people have different bodies. I have always encouraged my daughter to have a healthy understanding of sex for what it is and what it can be. She has known where babies come from since before she went to school, understood that sex is something that post-pubescent people engage in for physical pleasure or emotional connection for many years & I have answered questions about terms and acts that she has heard about from various sources. Sex is part of life & I have never (actively) tried to keep select parts of life out of her knowledge.
