How to Discuss Sex with Your Child

Keep in mind that your child will, if you start late (6 onwards is a good indicative), most likely know more than they let on about sex. In these days, kids often know more about sex than the parents realize.Talk about sex more than once. It's best if kids hear small doses about sex over and over. Having one "sex talk" might be a convenient way for a parent to "get it over with" but it conveys that there is something embarrassing about sex, and doesn't provide for openings in communication later.

How to Discuss Sex with Your Child

Tell your child about the names of their sexual body parts, saying "That's your penis" or "That part is your vulva." (Avoid using nicknames like "peepee" or even "privates" as they convey that the real name is "embarrassing" or "naughty".) Start as early as when they are tots. This is when they're learning about all parts of their body. Talk to them when they are showing interest in their own body, or playing (e.g. masturbating) with showing those things to you. It's totally normal.

How to Discuss Sex with Your Child

Talk to your elementary child about crushes. Listen for when they talk about kids hugging or kissing on the playground, and when you hear it, take the opportunity to find out if there's anyone they like. Have they ever kissed anyone? At around age ten is the first stage of sexual awareness for children. They notice that it feels good to touch themselves. This is an important stage for later sexual health and identity. Never shame your child for their natural tendencies, as this is a natural part of healthy sexual development. If your child starts discussing other people's sexual body parts (or lack thereof) feel free to correct them gently.

How to Discuss Sex with Your Child

Talk with them about sex some times. It is best to tell your child about sex a little bit every time. Although you can attract the opportunity to talk about it once and "forget", but this behavior might give your child the idea that sex somehow is shy or taboo topic that, of course, does not leave space for open communication on this subject in the future.
Teach your child about sexual organs of a man, saying, "This is your penis" or "This is your vagina." (Do not use nicknames like "pee" or "private parts" because it creates the impression that the real names of sexual organs "obscene" or "dirty".) Start sexual education of your child from an early age. Children begin to explore your body at an early age. Tell them about their genitals, when they show you interest in your body, or starting to play (i.e. to masturbate) with your genitals. It is absolutely normal.

How to Discuss Sex with Your Child

Listen to your middle schooler. Are they interested in boys, girls, or both? Are some of their friends "going out with someone " Ask where they go and what they do. It's really important for your kids to know that you'll listen without freaking out. You may have opinions about what's happening, but it's most important to hear what your child has to say. Ask them if they have any questions about boys or girls. Tell them about the mechanics of sexual intercourse. (Most of them have already heard this information from their friends who have older siblings, but it's important that they know you're willing to talk about it so they can come to you with questions later.)

How to Discuss Sex with Your Child

Discuss LGBT+ issues with your child. This will help them treat others with respect, and if they turn out not to be straight or cis, they will feel safe coming out to you.Explain that some people fall in love with others of the same gender, and some people fall in love with people regardless of gender. Try checking out books from the library that feature same-sex couples.

How to Discuss Sex with Your Child

In five years the kid will be wondering how he got in mommy's tummy. Omitting detailed technique, explain: dad gave mom his cell, which was connected to her cell, began to grow and as a result turned into a child. If he asks why, reply: love always gives new life.
The technique is to explain to the child later, in 8-9 years, when the body of the little man will begin to change. Girls, it is important to know that growing Breasts and menstruation are signs that it will become even more beautiful and turn into a young girl. A conversation with the boy draw his father - breaking voice, wet dreams and erections it is better to discuss with an adult man who will calm him down: it's just a manifestation of a healthy growing body, which is absolutely normal. Then try a neutral tone to describe the process of merging of two people and the formation of sperm – cells of a father, giving life to a child

How to Discuss Sex with Your Child

When your child asks you questions on the subject, always answer them truthfully and honestly and never lie or hide. If you don't know the answer, both you and your child can look up the meaning in a medical book. Honesty is always the best policy. Your child can resent you if you lie to them or hide it from them (e.g saying "I'll tell you when you are a bit older," or, "The Stork brought you here")

How to Discuss Sex with Your Child

Broaden your discussions as the child gets older. By high school, talk to your child about sexual feelings and thoughts. Sexual feelings are normal and are felt often and sometimes really strongly. Let your child know that they can enjoy their sexual feelings without acting on them. Ask them when they think a person would be ready to have sex. What are their parameters? Then share with them some of the thoughts you have now, and the feelings you remember having in high school.

How to Discuss Sex with Your Child

Sex education often begins as simple anatomy lessons during the toddler years. But during the school-age years, your child might start asking specific questions about sex. Not sure what to say? Consider this guide to discussing sex with your school-age child. Toddlers and preschoolers are often satisfied with vague answers to questions about where babies come from. But school-age children tend to ask more-specific questions about the connection between sexuality and making babies. As your child's questions about sex become more complex — and perhaps more embarrassing — he or she may turn to friends or other sources for information.
