You are the best sex educator for your child because you will share your values. Values are hugely important to kids when it comes to sexual decision making.
As with most children who are not typically developing in someway, your kiddo is more vulnerable to being taken advantage of sexually. This makes it doubly important you have conversations with your child that are direct, regular and chock-full of information.
It’s part of a committed sexual relationship, and not something done casually or in exchange for something else. It’s not something you EVER have to do.
We had Wifey by Judy Blume to sneak off our parents bookshelf and have our minds blown by; our children will have 50 Shades of Grey to sneak off our bookshelves and have their minds totally exploded by.
Give it up, sisters. Ain’t gonna happen. Because if it was going to happen, it would have by now. There are endless opportunities to talk to our kids about sex, love, dating, bodies, boundaries and the whole universe of sexuality. And, as far as I can tell, most daddies are not rising (heh-heh) to this particular occasion.
