Kids are now engaging in sexual behaviors way earlier than we did. That is not okay. It’s very dangerous emotionally and physically. Yet our kids are doing it; even so called good kids”. Does creating a healthy homelife protect your child from this?
As parents, we try to get our children through their teenage years without having sex despite the outside messages and the peer pressure. You do this by talking to your children about sex and self respect and the dangers. Not once, but over and over again throughout the years. Gear your conversation towards your child’s age and maturity.
Since I have a 16 year old daughter, I’ve been searching for an upside to this phenomenon. I think I may have found one. I’m wondering if these kids are going to be more comfortable with their sexuality later in life.
I grew up in a time where sex was not even spoken about in most homes. If you were lucky your parents might have left a book on your bed without discussing it How awkward! Girls were told to be good and not let boys touch them. Good girls don’t do that. What we got from that is a lot of sexually uptight baby boomers.
We’ll see what happens as this next generation matures.
