    seeing as how I don't any kids, I don't have to worry about this problem.  lol I would like to ask you parents out there, how do you tell your kids about the birds and bees? big_smile

      I think its an outdated concept (the good old sitdown). Kids tend to know more about sex than their parents by the time they are old enough to do it themselves.

      If you're refering to children, you can use broad analogies wink They don't seem to mind.

        Eh, watching sexy MTV videos doesn't equal "knowing more about sex than their parents." I agree that they tend to know a lot more about sex than their parents expect, but if you explore it a bit they tend to have some ridiculous and completely false beliefs they've picked up from friends, like the old "you can't get pregnant the first time" lie.

        And the younger they get, the crazier these beliefs tend to be. When my nephew was 10, he was under the impression that women got pregnant from eating certain foods. lol

      You tell them straight up and like it really is.  It is simple when you tell the truth.  Kids appreciate that first and foremost.  Furthermore, expect to quickly lose their respect, if you go around calling sexual intercourse "the birds and bees."  That is comparable to calling his dick a winkie, and her twat a pee pee.

      Teenagers need adults to be adult about the subject matter.

        We'd have to define what a child is. I'd tell a 12-year old "straight up". But I wouldn't want a seven year old running around the school bus yelling about her "twat".
