How to Talk About Sexual Health with Your Teen or Tween
Sexual health and wellness are tough topics to bring up with your tween or teen. More research is coming out daily showing the importance of age appropriate sex education beginning in early childhood. With increasing screen time, internet access, and mobile devices available to children younger and younger, kids are seaking out or stumbling across pornogrpahy and graphic content at increasingly younger ages. Adolescents are more likely to have healthier relationships and less likely to have sex or have risky sex if they are armed with accurate information about sex, sexuality, and contraception. Many adults I know, myself included, have had awkward or uncomfortable experiences of teachers, pastors, or parents trying to teach about sex education. These conversations, at their worst, can be harmful to a young persons bourgeoning erotic self. At their best, they can be informative, honest, factual, and helpful.
