Sex chat learn
What does talking about sexuality to four- or five-year-olds look like?
It’s openly answering (not dodging) their questions like, “Why do grown-ups like to kiss? ” Sex education with very young children is also about teaching them the proper names of all their body parts—especially the girl ones that we never seem to name (all girls should know the difference between their vulva and their vagina, for instance).
If you wait until your kid is 11 to talk about sex, the amount of information you’ll have to impart will be overwhelming.
Trying to explain sex to an 11-year-old when you’ve never talked about anything sex-related before is kind of like trying to teach your child algebra before they know what numbers or letters are: It’ll be way too much all at once.
Among other things, the latter is something none of us get a lot of practice doing.
Which brings me to my final, and I think best, arguments for why you want to start early with your kids.
