Sex. What are we going to do? It’s everywhere. But how do we navigate the treacherous waters of talking to our kids about the subject that must not be mentioned? What should parents say? What should we not say? What’s too much information? And when are we creating a fixation within our kids by treating sex like the most taboo subject in the world. This week the boys talk about sex. More specifically, the healthiest way to talk to your kids about it.
Links to information discussed in the show:
If we don't teach our children about sex well, then the porn industry will.
If we're not having conversations with our kids, then their curiosity goes wild
Our kids need to us parents loving on each other.
Have conversations early and often, not just one big 'talk'.
