Do you still need to speak to your child about the facts of life in this modern day?
Speaking to your child about sex or any other aspect of life.
For sure! It needs to come from the parent, for the child will hear about it somewhere and it should come from the parent first, so they, the children, will know the truth about every aspect of it and they should feel comfortable coming to the parent with any problem or question they have without hesitation, especially on this important issue.
Definitely - sometimes with too much information, also comes misinformation. Found that I had to dispel a few crazy myths that had somehow developed from the truth.
Plus it helps make talking to your kids about anything a little on the awkward side, a tad easier.
Yes, for one you never want to leave it to another influence. For two you are the one that loves them most and best, so you will tell them according to what will be good for them. Three, they respect a loving parent's point of view.
Of course you do. If you don't, I consider it a loss of bonding and failure of a parent. Do not leave it up to the school or their friends. That's insulting and rude, not only to those your children are asking information from but also to your child. It is your job to give them the tools they will need later in life. Mistake or not, broke or not; they are your responsibility. Someone else might give them wrong information. Where would that lead? An accidental pregnancy, leaving high school early, dangerous social circles, etc.
