Why We Need to Enlighten our Children about Sexuality.
In the past years when the world had not evolved as it is today discussion about sex was postponed until one got to the teenage. Today a six-year-old could see and hear sex at the snap of a finger. Having known this, we must accept the fact that new methods must be required to deal with this new occurrence. Sex education is a topic of great importance and yet it is something that scares us. People are yet not ready to address sexual matters.
The times in which a mother would wait for her daughter to reach adolescence so that she can address sex issues are long gone. In the current era, toddlers are very eager to be informed about sex that you will be left asking if they were born with information about sex when you look at their age.
A seven years toddler knows what you knew at 25 in the past years. Kids learn a lot from their first source of information. You will stand to be blamed as a parent if you delay early sex education to your juniors and leave the task to the online world or the persons that your children interact with. Handling sexually related issues in your kid’s life on time will help yield good fruits.
Never let the sex-related questions raised by your kids go unanswered. Kids have the character of being interrogative. Children long to feel their minds with knowledge and they dig this out from the grown-ups whom they view as all-knowing and hope that they will direct them. It might be surprising when child first asks you questions about sex, but it is your responsibility to satisfy their curiosity. Many adults will bar their children from asking such questions or even be harsh on them for asking questions related to sex. Even the society has branded any talk about sex as dirty but all this is wrong.
The answer you give to your kid matters a lot. You should not give your kid an answer that blocks your kid from asking any question or a funny answer. Respond confidently with the appropriate answers . When you start addressing sex matters with your kid before they reach adolescence they will not feel uncomfortable talking about sex issues when adolescence knocks. This is because discussing these things will be normal between you and your child.
It is also a good thing that you lead your kids by example. Practice what you teach them and do what you would have them do. When your talk is a reflection of your life your kids will find it easy to take after you. Know that children are good in copying what parents do than practicing what they are told.
