Family & Relationships
After reading Part 1, you've decided that you're going to do it. You're going to talk with your kids about sex. You've accepted that they are good people, that their natural inclination is to do good and not harm to others, so you already know this is going to be a conversation, not a sermon. A process, not an event. A teaching of how to think, not what to think.
Most of us parents feel waaay awkward talking to our children about sex because we have no idea what we're doing. Note: the kids are noticeably creeped out too.
Here are a few no-fail answers to get you and your kids started. Getting the party started: First, ask yourself as a parent if you believe your children are good people who want good for others. Most of us believe in our children so an emphatic "Yes!" means that we really need to focus on a conversation rather than a lesson or, worse yet, a sermon.
