Tips for the Sex Talk

Before we heat up this discussion, here’s a quick reminder about snow safety tips — check out some ideas on staying safe if you’re in the snow zone. [It’s ironic, but this snow safety post was exactly one year ago today, and we’re looking at a record snowfall in Maryland tonight!]

I came across some great resources from Planned Parenthood, complete with their latest video tutorial on how to talk to your kids about sex in a healthy, open way. This is well worth 5 minutes – it’s very direct, straightforward, and has a healthy approach:

Definitely worth a listen, but here are some of the highlights I thought were really powerful:

— Incorporate your own values

Validate your child’s questions

— Ask lots of open-ended questions

The Planned Parenthood website has lots of free resources as well for teaching parents to talk to kids about sex – click here for the shortcut to that info.

What tips do you have to help fellow moms broach this delicate subject?
