I have noticed over the past several months (well, almost a year really since I started this site) that every time a situation arises with a young child that is a PERFECT opportunity to talk with them about sex (i.e. My child walked in on us having sex; I caught my child touching herself; my son was looking at porn, etc.) parents are so quick to punish?
Why not embrace these opportunity's to talk with your child about what they are feeling? I also have seen recently a lot of questions regarding who talked to YOU about sex or your period when you were younger, and almost NO ONE said their parents. Wouldn't you like to change that trend? Don't you want your kids to be open with you and come to you with questions? Punishing them for being curious about their bodies and the opposite sex is not setting a good foundation of trust between you and your child...
Am I the only one that thinks this way?
