Sex education is extremely important in order to ensure that our younger generation is not only safe, but healthy too. It is surprising to see and encounter even in today’s age and era how many teenagers and adults alike get different types of diseases because they are not aware of safe practices in their intimate lives.
How and Where does Sex Education Begin?
Sex education begins at home where the parents teach their kids of basics such as personal hygiene, menstrual cycle and safe sex. It is very important to create a comfortable medium with your kids where they can speak, ask and follow your advice and not hide and make mistakes in the process.
Parents are never ready to see their children begin their sexual life but the sooner you speak to your kids, the sooner you will enjoy a better relationship and bond where your child will look at you more as a friend and not as a parent.
There are a number of benefits from speaking to your child at the right time about sexual behavior and they are:
Your child will practice safe methods because he or she will be aware of the dangers involved and most of all the fact that his or her life could be at risk.
Your child will not hide important issues from you because by speaking about intimate things such as sex with you he will feel close enough to tell you about the other troubles or mistakes he has done which might save his life.
Knowledge is power and by teaching your child about sex you will make sure that he is safe at all times. Sex education should always start at home in familiar comfortable surroundings where both you and your child feel at ease to chat and make that bond even stronger.
