A bit of sex eduction never hurts

When should we start to educating our young people about sex? It is not always easy to know when to start to educate young people about sex. My daughter is 12, and I have always been honest with her about sex. My husband says that I may have been a bit too honest with here, but I just can’t help that. I am Swedish and in Sweden we are just very honest about sex.

I think that if you don’t make a great big secret of sex, and explain it in normal terms without getting embarrassed, kids will just accept sex. In our household, sex is no secret and our daughter has not ever been told anything silly like babies can be found in Tescos, or anything like that. It is quite obvious that you cannot swap your Clubcard points for a baby, you need to have sex to have a baby.

Notting Hill Escorts

Quite a few Notting Hill escorts are moms as well, and they agree with me. Most Notting Hill escorts think that schools do not educate kids about sex very well. They make such a big deal of it that the kids just laugh. There are always a few embarrassed giggles, but Notting Hill escorts seem to agree with me. Sex should be a natural part of life, and being honest about it works.

It is interesting to note that a country such as Sweden, which is very upfront about sex, has the one of the lowest rate of teenage pregnancies in the world. Notting Hill escorts say that this is obviously a policy that works, and the UK has a lot to learn from that.

Sex Education

It is important to not just leave it up to the teachers at your children’s school. When kids talk to you about sex, answer them honestly and they will not make such a big deal out if it.

I remember when our daughter ļ¬gured out that mom and dad had sex more than once but not had any more babies. She wondered why and I explained to her about contraception. Okay, she said and that was the end of that. It wasn’t a big deal to her as the entire subject of sex had already been dealt with.

What makes me laugh is when she gets silly or naughty texts from the boys in school. She clearly realises that she is not old to have sex yet, and she rebuffs some of the boys with messages like “You do not turn me on”, or ” You are not for me”. Like all parents we monitor her activity, and we have realised that she knows how to protect herself. One older boy got very cheeky and she sent him a Tweet saying “End of discussion or I tell your mom”. Needless to say he never bothered her again.

I fully accept that one day my daughter will have sex, and I hope she tells me. In the meantime I know that she understands contraception, and that she knows how to stand up for herself. It is a good feeling to have when your a mom to a girl who becomes a teenager this year.
