talking to your kids

Apr 29, 2009 - 3 comments

I have been on this forum for awhile now, I have noticed something that is beginning to bother me. The number of underage teens having sex.... We all know it's gonna happen.... but the sad thing is they aren't being safe about it.

I know it is difficult to do but talk to your kids about sex, make sure they are aware of the diseases that are out there... Show them some photos of herpes, warts, and syphilis... go through each STD and make sure they understand what they are getting into before it is too late and they end up with an STD.

We are all human we all do dumb things, and in most cases pay the toll... but they are kids and shouldn't have to worry about these things. They just don't know what’s out there, they are naive and clueless.

Today when you child gets home sit down with them and talk to them about the big SEX word and all of the burdens that can come with it... but remind them when they find the right guy/girl and are old enough it is a beautiful thing.

Just some words of thought.

I agree. About 3 months ago when my 16 year started dating we sat him, my 14 year old, and 11 year down and explained condoms , respecting they're bodies and others, and babies and diseases . My 14 year old asked"Mom aren't you imbarrassed to talk to us about this right now, together". I told him that I would be a whole lot more imbarrassed to have to look myself in mirror everday as he was dying, or sick from an STD knowing I hadn't talked to them. We explained in terms they all got, and have spent time each week reaffirming it. They have came and told me of friends who are now pregnant or are sick, I feel bad for those children. I feel very thankful that we continue talking to ours. Thanks for your post, hoefully everyone will do their part. Have a great day!

Here in China , we don't even talk about sex in front of kids, not to mention sex education .It is funny to know that even in USA not all the kids there were informed,.but not funny that they might face the risk .The role of parents play in the sex education is to guide them the right direction. I receive no information from my parents ,and I learn most of it from adult films (as I know most kids here learn that in the same way ). That misguided me consequently,and I believe other kids were in the same situation. The problem of teens abortion and HIV haunted us during the past years. The effort we took in the campus works, yet it  is not enough. Hope that more and more familes in China realise the importance of education ,and it is not embarrassing to talk about sex .
