Let’s Talk: How Early Is Too Early To Talk To Your Children About The “Birds and The Bees”?


Talking to your child about sex can be pretty difficult due to many feeling like they’re exposing their child too early to the topic. Although some may have their reservations, the conversation is needed.

 

Whether we like it or not, our children are going to have to sex. WHEN will they have sex is the real question. Although you will not know the day or time your child will encounter with sexual activities for the first time, it’s necessary to have the discussion with them before it’s too late.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Often times, your child will not approach you about the subject so you have to do it first. Believe it or not, children are exposed to sex daily and it may not be from you. Their peers are talking about it at school, on the playground, on the bus, etc.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As their body goes through changes, their thoughts and feelings begin to change. Rather than them acting out on urges or curiosity, parents have to talk to their children about everything from condoms to pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases, and sexuality.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Girls today are entering puberty as early as 9-years-old, prompting the need to talk to them about the changes they are experiencing. The worst thing to do, is put the conversation off. Talk to your children and listen to what they have to say and answer any questions they may have.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Growing up, a lot of our parents didn’t have “the birds and the bees” conversation with us. I️t was more of, “if you bring a baby in this house, I’m going to beat your a$$.” Rather than repeating the cycle, talk to them the way you wanted your parents to talk to you.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When you begin to see changes in your child, you will know when it’s the right time. Parents know their children and should act accordingly. Rather than your child acting on their feelings, talk to them before it’s too late.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How old were you when you had “the birds and the bees” talk?
