Talking to your children about sexuality is important
Your child's curiosity is growing, especially with the changes that are happening to his or her body as they grow and mature. It is necessary to speak to your child about sexuality as it prevents him or her from engaging in early sexual activities. It is also important to educate your child on the different protective measures for use at a later age.
Take pride in knowing that making the first move to speak to your child regarding sexuality only serves to protect and better equip him or her for the future. Embark on one of parenthood’s most enriching experiences together with your child as he or she enters the next chapter of life. It also helps to create a good foundation for communication so that your child will always feel comfortable to approach you.
