They are so little… it seems like an unnatural thing to open this discussion with our children , seeing that even went hay are grown ups we do not cease to consider them little children.
But when is it the right time to start this conversation, what are the right words, the right place the right occasion?
The child’s sexual education begins after his first month of life. Children explore their bodies by touching themselves and sometimes they can even excite their sexual organs by accident, and thus continue this action as a normal thing.
This thing can also happen later in age, at about 2 or 3 years old.
Out of embarrassment, in most cases, parents find it difficult to talk to their children about sexual organs and sexual life.
The best moment to start talking with your child about sex is the moment he asks. The most important thing is not to postpone this conversation for an unlimited period of time. If parent do that, it is possible that children find these answers from other sources.
We should remember that there is not one big discussion. Things of this kind should be discussed from time to time, the complexity of the subject depending on the age of your child.
It is important to remember that in most cases the children’s attitude regarding sex depends on their parents’ one.
These discussions should be as natural as possible without being embarrassed or blushing at every sentence. If that happens, you child will think that subjects of this kind are embarrassing and unnatural .
These talks should not be very detailed. They do not have the purpose of initiating your child in the arts of sex. They should be as educational as possible.
We should also offer them information regarding sexually transmitting disease but making sure that we do not exaggerate so that we do not accentuate only the negative sides of sex.
If we tend to avoid this kind of discussions we will only stir our children’s interest on the matter and they will go finding others from other sources , maybe not as reliable as us.
