You need to see the facial expression of the students I was about addressing when I made mention of the topic sex. It gives me a clear insight on how they’ve been willing to know about sex which anyone has not told them.
There, I was standing with a series of question running through my mind such as should I discuss this issue with this kids, why are they so curious to know about sex? A lot of things are not just right today all because someone has failed to explain. This kind of topic should be discussed in churches by elders, schools by teachers and parents at home.
Once your kids ask you about sex, you shouldn’t run away from giving the right response. Where else do you expect them to get the proper knowledge or information about sex? A more significant percentage of youths get to know about sex through pornography, and that has a demeaning effect on their life.
Parents are the ones in the right position to discuss the issue of sex with their kids. I’m sure you don’t want your kids to learn it from somewhere else. The “how to” has been the major challenge for most parents and quickly we will discuss how you can talk to your kids about sex without any regrets.
How can I talk to my kid’s about sex?
Talk positively and be truthful
You need to start by telling them all they need to know about their sex organ. It means you have to start with the names for genitals. Be truthful to announce to them names like penis, Vulva, Vagina, Clitoris, Nipples, and bum are names your kids should know.
You need to tell your kids the function of penis and vagina beyond the use of urination. Tell them the vagina is where the baby comes out from and be truthful to tell them sexual intercourse is when a guy inserts his penis into a girl vagina.
Parents should stop using the statement “Don’t have sex” but instead should tell their kids why they should not have it and wait for the appropriate time. Tell them it is the reason for most unwanted pregnancy and that one can easily contact sexually transmitted disease.
Give right answers to the question
You have to be calm and be more hospitable to your kids if you want them to be plain with asking you some questions. Once they ask you questions, try all in your power to make it simple with your responses.
Don’t be too reliant that your kids don’t know anything yet about sex. Ask them questions about what they know about sex and carefully listen to them. They might have got erroneous teaching elsewhere, and you have the platform to correct that.
Tell them the guy has the sperm in their system that is ejected through the penis once they reach their climax while their penis is inside the vagina. Females have eggs in their ovaries, and once the sperm from the male comes in contact, it fertilizes, and that will result in pregnancy.
Tell them they have the right to protect their body from other opposite sex. Teach them privacy, tell the girls they should not allow the opposite sex to touch their breast and bum and the guys to respect the opposite sex by not touching.
Get them informed as to when it is the right time to have sex, teach them about puberty changes and continuously talk to them about it.
