Why is having the sex talk with your child such a challenge? No matter what your child’s age, if you’re lucky enough to have them come to you with questions about sex and other sensitive topics, don’t let your fears and concerns stop you from having the “Talk.” If your child comes to you, it’s important to be honest and tell the truth, and they’ll know if you’re lying. If you don’t know how to answer their questions, be honest and tell them, but make sure you get back to them with a response. Once you’ve started the conversation, make sure to find teachable moments moving forward.
6 reasons parents resist having the “Talk.”
Number 1 – Too Young – My child is too young to hear this information; this is a topic for much later.
Number 2 –Too much resistance from my child – Every time I start the conversation, my child rolls her eyes and tells me she knows everything.
Number 3- If I have that discussion with my child, they might go out and use the information.
Number 4- Don’t know where to start and afraid to say the wrong thing.
Number 5 – I’m waiting for them to come to me.
Number 6 - Too busy to take a class. Our schedules don’t allow it.
As valid as many of these reasons are, the bottom line is that young people today must have the information when it comes to the topic of sex. By nature, kids are curious, and if their questions and concerns aren’t addressed by a parent or an adult, they will go to their peers or the internet. Our new e-course, Puber-Tea and Where Babies Come From, addresses the topic factually and makes future conversations much easier. We have you covered!
We require attendees to provide a minimum of 48 hours notice for cancellation of any class registration if a refund is desired.
