Let's face it - most of us hated it when our parents gave us "the talk" - so for those of us who have a younger brother or sister when do you think it is most appropriate to discuss sex?
sort by best latest
Thank you for your in-depth answer. I feel a bit out of sorts with it because she's near the age already of being sexually active, but I know she hasn't been spoken to about sex by an adult family member. This is why I thought "I could do it!"
Hi Whitney. Have you talked to a parent or adult in the household about this? Warmly, Marnie
I did and it was agreed upon that it would be better for me to speak to my younger sister about it. Our father literally went ashen with the idea of even doing it himself, hahaha.
I figured it'd be best to talk to my little sister about it than our dad or her mom. She's at the appropriate age now and I agree with you in letting her think I'm "cool". Better than that horrific movie you watch in like 7th grade!
Trust me...having "the talk" is awful. My mother works in the medical field which made it even more horrific and I was 9.
I don't think that is too early at all. I figured by the time I have children of my own that I would slowly inform them when the questions come from a young age. I think it's a fantastic approach, but others unfortunately do not.
