Time for THE Talk?

Health Mother Daughter Talk

Many parents find it difficult to talk with their children about sex.

These tips from the American Academy of Pediatrics may make “the talk” a little easier:

– Be prepared. Practice what you plan to say.

– Be honest. Let your teen know that information about sex should come from you.

– Listen. Give your teen a chance to talk and ask questions.

– Try to strike a balance. While teens need privacy, they also need information and guidance.

– Ask for help. If you just can’t do it alone, ask your pediatrician, a trusted aunt or uncle, or a member of the clergy for help.
