You’re the most valuable source of information your kids have. When parents have honest, open conversations about sex, teens are more likely to delay sexual activity themselves, and use effective birth control when they choose to become sexually active. Set your kids up for success. Talk about it. Here are some ways to get started:
Talking about sex can be complicated, but we’re here to help you spark the conversation and find accurate information your kids will listen to.
Remember that The Talk should be ongoing, open, and natural conversations throughout your child’s life—not just a one-time occurrence.
It’s best to avoid using metaphors when having The Talk—this will help your kids feel comfortable asking questions to learn how everything works.
Even when you don’t have all the answers, doing research together can often be the best way to keep talking about it.
