When Should You Start Talking To Your Children About Sex

Bookmark and Share
The right age to talk to your children about sex is going to depend on your child, the type of friends he or she has as well as and most of all, your children's need to go up to quickly. Some children want to be adults quicker than they should and will need to have "the talk" earlier than kids that want to take their time and grow up.

You could expect to start talking to your children about sex as early as ten or eleven years old. The way you present the topic to your children is what is going to make the difference. If you give more information than what is needed for their particular age, it could backfire. Just enough information is needed so they will understand about abstinence and sexually transmitted disease is a good place to start.

Once you start, you will need to continually talk to your children about sex and gradually include more information. The best sex education starts at home since the schools are not very helpful in this subject.

You do not have to spend a lot of money and buy your kids "Stuff" to have them turn out right. You will not need to try out any weirdo, new age, and wacko parenting stuff. Learn how you can avoid the big problems of drugs and sex. It is not necessary to be "super parent" to have your kids turn out "normal"

    The numbers don't lie - the statistics related to STDs, HIV and AIDS are sadly real.

    Which means theunfortunate fact is this: NO ONE is immune.

    Bottom line? "If IT's not on, IT's not in!" is the motto today's sexually active youth

    & adults MUST adopt if they want to live longer, healthier & happier lives.

    Between 40,000 & 50,000 Americans become infected with HIV each year:

    - 50% are 13 to 24 years old & EVERY HOUR (2) or more teens or young adults contract HIV. In response to those overwhelming statistics, King Middle School of Portland, Maine, began distributing various forms of birth control to 10 to 14 year old students in 6th thru 8th grade. When polled, 70% of adults agreed - in light of the grim facts - public schools should be allowed to issue birth control to teens.

    - (1) MILLION+ Americans currently live with HIV or AIDS. Roughly 25% of them became infected as teens (among whom the toll continues to rise). Most teens today have NO IDEA when they became infected, which means they can't & don't protect themselves or others. With no symptoms at all (feeling & appearing completely healthy) they spread the disease through risky sexual behavior.

    - Condoms are 99% EFFECTIVE at stopping the spread of STDs and immediately reduce user risk of getting & passing on HIV. Look, there's a virtual ALPHABET SOUP of unhealthy, unpleasant STDs floating around out there (incl. chlamydia, genital warts, gonorrhea, herpes and syphilis) and as many as (3) MILLION sexually active teens get them EVERY YEAR - by having unprotected sex.

    - IT is about getting real: AIDS has caused 530,000 DEATHS in America. There's still NO CURE or vaccine for HIV or AIDS & a startling 78% of new HIV cases in women result from heterosexual activity. Unless young men take on fewer sex partners or wear condoms more often, HIV & AIDS will continue to spread.

    - Ghana initiated a campaign called "Stop AIDS…Love Life" which featured the slogan "If IT'S not on IT'S not in!" - avoiding direct use of the word condom. It was such a HUGE success, condom sales shot from $2.7M to $6.6M in six months for the country's largest manufacturer. "IT" harnesses the power of a T-Shirt to make THAT kind of impact on everyone at risk - EVERYONE!

    Can you really live without "IT"?
