But, in the contrary though, these are the moments of opportunity to slowly introduce to your child about sex education.
It is not that she wants to hear the details on the “how”; younger kids tend to have interests in pregnancies and babies, but not the mechanics of sex. Instead, take it as a good opportunity to discuss sex education to your child.
Sex education begins at home. Children, as they grow, are naturally curious, and one of the things they get so curious about is their body—teaching them about sex and sexuality early on will help them to recognize and understand their body parts. It’s a good idea to teach them about it so that you can instill your family values as you go along the sensitive topic. And what could be more rewarding is they learn it from you before they learn it from somewhere else, especially nowadays that access to such information are literally everywhere.
If you’re worried about them getting sex education from school, their friends, or the media, review and validate what they learned. Let them feel that it’s safe to talk about it with you. This way, they will be more comfortable to open such discussion with you as they get older.
