Importance of Sex Education to Children.
In the past years when the world had not evolved as it is today discussion about sex was postponed until one got to the teenage. Today, with the advanced technology even young kids can access sex information. Because of this change we must all concur that new ways need to used to deal with this change. Sex education is a topic of great importance and yet it is something that scares us. The embarrassment of talking about sex is still there.
In the past centuries parents waited for the first signs of adolescence before they could discuss sex with their kids. Nowadays kids are impatient to know much about sex that you can be left wondering if they were born knowing sex.
Today, what a person knew at their twenties is known by a child below the age of ten. Children are much influenced by whatever source of knowledge they came across first. Thus, if you leave the job of their early sex education training and sensitization to the internet friends and neighbors by not acting early enough it will be your undoing. Starting early in child sex education guarantees better results than the converse.
Never let the sex-related questions raised by your kids go unanswered. Kids have the character of being interrogative. They yearn to fill up their emptiness, and they seek out adults, whom they consider to be symbols of knowledge, to guide them through. It may catch you unawares when your child inquires about sex, but it is your role to make them feel answered. Many adults will bar their children from asking such questions or even be harsh on them for asking questions related to sex. It is a mentality even to the community that any discussion related to sexuality is unethical which is wrong thinking.
The responses that you give your child related to sex are very crucial. Do not give a dismissive or a ridiculous answer. Respond calmly with candid answers. When you begin to discuss issues with your pre-puberty child they will not be shy when talking to you when puberty comes knocking. This is because discussing these things will be normal between you and your child.
Live a life that you could wish your children to take after. Ensure that your teachings match your lifestyle. When you walk your talk they will feel courageous in following your steps. Always keep in mind that children can imitate you more than they can follow your teachings.
