The Essential Laws of Education Explained
Reasons why Parents Should Teach Their Kids about Sex-Related Issues.
In the past centuries when the world was not as advanced as it is nowadays sex matters were addresses at puberty. Nowadays with the changed world even the juniors can easily find sex information. 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.
Past are the days in which a woman waited for her daughter to see her first period then sat her down to give her a comprehensive lecture about sex and its implications. Nowadays kids are impatient to know much about sex that you can be left wondering if they were born knowing sex.
A seven years toddler knows what you knew at 25 in the past years. Children are much influenced by whatever source of knowledge they came across first. Thus, if you leave the job of their early sex education training and sensitization to the internet friends and neighbors by not acting early enough it will be your undoing. Handling sexually related issues in your kid’s life on time will help yield good fruits.
It is very important not to ignore the sex-related questions from your child. It is the nature of children to ask many questions. They yearn to fill up their emptiness, and they seek out adults, whom they consider to be symbols of knowledge, to guide them through. It may catch you unawares when your child inquires about sex, but it is your role to make them feel answered. Many adults will bar their children from asking such questions or even be harsh on them for asking questions related to sex. It is a mentality even to the community that any discussion related to sexuality is unethical which is wrong thinking.
What you give a child as a response is also very important. You should not give your kid an answer that blocks your kid from asking any question or a funny answer. always give satisfying answers to your kids questions. 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. Make sure that what you do is what you are telling them so that they can copy from you. This gives them the confidence in applying what you teach them. Always keep in mind that children can imitate you more than they can follow your teachings.
