"Parent tell your children the truth about sex"

If we don't teach our children the truth about sex from home, they will learn about it in the streets and we can't let that happen.

"Parent tell your children the truth about sex"

We should tell our children the truth about sex, since it's a normal part of living and of life. When it comes to telling our children the truth about sex, the act and the responsibilty of it, we as parent panic and get faint hearted and very embarrassed. If you're embarrassed you shouldn't be because it's natural and is a normal part of growing up. If parent don't wise up and tell the children the truth about sex, they will find out this information from someone else that might not have had a good experience with sex. Would wouldn't want someone from the streets to tell our children the A's, B's and C's of sex. We as parent are responsible for giving our children the correct knowledge of sexual information ourselves. We don't want them to get the wrong information from someone else. Let's face it, we don't want our children to learn about sex the hard way, like some of us did. Our parent didn't tell us everything we should have known in order to protect ourselves. So, we suffered the consequences by getting pregnant or worse.

Our parent wasn't forth coming with this information because they were to embarrassed and scared to death, like some of you are right now. If you have a close relationship with your child or children then it want be a problem. I have five children and three are girls, so if you have daughters, you really don't want to pull any punches about sexual information they need right now to protect themselves. I told my daughters about sex when they were about nine years old, if they're old enough to have a cycle, then they're old enough to be told the truth about sex. Please don't sugar coat it for them, tell them the truth in graphic detail so they will understand and want take anything lightly. We don't want our children not knowingly trying something that may impact the rest of their lives. None of our children should be walking around blindfolded, when it comes to knowing certain facts about sex. The boys I'm sure, will be more informed than the girls. Since that's what they live for and dream about. This is exactly why the girls must have every piece of information that's made available to them, so they can make the right choices about sex. I got pregnant when I was sixteen, not because I was a bad girl but because my parent didn't tell me everything.

So, I could make the right choices. By not knowing I made the biggest mistake of my life. I Know for a fact that mom didn't tell me every thing, because of the same dumb reasons you don't tell your daughters, which is totally ridiculous. when I had my baby, it was a girl and I promised that she would know the whole truth about sex and I kept my promise. I didn't want any of my daughters to make the same dumb mistake as I did about sex, because I didn't know the truth. I feel if we have the knowledge about anything, we can arm ourselves and keep them out of harms way. Without knowledge we perish and we don't want this for any of our children. I know parent love their children and want to tell the truth but they're afraid of questions that might come up.That they wouldn't know exactly how to answer them. what it boils down to is, would you prefer a stranger to tell your child the truth or would you rather tell them yourself? it's going to be on you either way it goes. If you don't want them getting the wrong information, we have tell them the truth and we will feel better about it.

You can't stop your children form becoming physical but you can tell them how you feel about the prospects of them being sexually active. We can tell them that we hope they will wait until they find the right guy, to marry and settle down. Doing all this still want ensure that our child want become physical but they will know exactly how we feel about it. We have to go one step further and tell them, we wish they wouldn't get physically involved with sex yet but if they feel they can't control themselves. They need to get some form of birth control and not wait for the guy to protect them. I feel it's better for the girl to take care of her self if she's going be physical, she might as well be safe. We have to stress the importance of being free of unwanted pregnancies and being safe from deadly diseases. Some up you might think well if I help, I'm condoning. Well it's like this, they 're going to do it anyway so, they might as well be protected. So, they don't be sorry later. I'm a mother that wanted her daughters safe at all cost. Since I didn't want them to go through what I went through. Being an unconventional mother paid off for me, because I told my girls what God loves, the truth and they listen. There isn't anything out there that beats telling your children the truth and letting them know we care about what happens to them. If our children see that we're trying to help them, then just maybe they'll help themselves. If you're really close with your children, this will make it easer and better.
