Does it make you nervous that your children will ask many different questions about sex, and those questions will only get more specific as they get older?
Many parents think giving vague answers, or perhaps changing the subject and offering the questioning child a cookie, is a valid solution.
But really, we moms and dads have to up our game.
We must be prepared with thoughtful and honest answers so our kids continue coming to us… rather than looking for answers online, on bathroom walls or whispered conversations with equally clueless peers.
I’ve been through these different phases of questioning and can tell you there’s a way to get your kids from elementary school through high school without diseases or pregnancies.
