Sex Ed: Having the “Birds & Bees” Talk with Children


When you are educating your children about sex and sexual wellness we all know how intimidated you can be with the whole situation. However, the best solution is to try and keep it as simple as possible.

We all know that sexual wellness can be maintained if you consistently take the proper precautions to protect yourself from sexually transmitted diseases. The most common male contraceptive used today is the condom and when educating your children about this you must make sure you do it at the right time and in the right environment.

A lot of schools have compulsory SexEd classes these days so you may never have to have the “Birds and Bees” conversation with your child at all. However, other than what schools are teaching your child, it is important for parents to make the child understand the emphasis of abstinence and picking the right person when the time is right.

It is unreasonable to expect that children today will wait until they get married, however, how we bring them up and what we teach them can prevent them from a lot of unfortunate situations like teen pregnancies, STDs, etc.

It is very important for parents to do some research on STDs before you have that “dreaded” conversation with you child because children now-a-days are very fact oriented and they are bound to look up Google to validate what you have told them.

If you have a teenage daughter and she is in a relationship, it is best for you to ensure that she sees a gynecologist to get advice on contraceptive pills. It may sound extremely uncomfortable for a man but this could prevent her from unfortunate accidents.

If you have a teenage son and he is in a relationship or simply likes to date, it is best for you to ensure that you are the one to provide him his first pack of condoms. It is very simple to buy condoms online. There are a lot of websites where condoms can be purchased with ease. They are delivered to you in a concealed packet so no one will know what is in the pack. It is important for this education to start at home before we expect everyone around us to change.
