Ah the topic of sex and the even more joyful parental responsibility of teaching your child about sex. You toe the line between making sure that your kids know enough about sex to keep them safe but worry about giving them too much information and encouraging them to go out and engage in said sexual acts. Let’s just set the record straight, kids informed about sex are not going to go out and jump into bed because they “suddenly know about it”. Let’s dispel that myth. It’s like the myth that if you ask someone about being suicidal, they’re going to go out and commit suicide because you asked them about it.
Let’s face it, sex is a part of the human creation. It’s literally the way that humans are created. As Christians, we believe that sex is meant to be enjoyed within the marital union. This doesn’t always happen though as we live in a sinful world. Sadly, sexual transmitted diseases, cancer as well as unwed pregnancies are a real part of life, difficult and sad parts of life. Arming our children with knowledge is our duty as parents. Educating our children starts at home and it can be simple from the start. You don’t have to wait for “the talk” to begin to educate children about sex. Here are a few pointers starting from young to adult children.
I understand that as a parent, we want the best for our children. I want the best for my four children as well. If I say it here to all of you, I pray that I can put my own wisdom to work should I need it later on in my children’s lives. Sex is special and should not be used to trade for anything other than the love, honor and respect of one another. Remember everyone uses the bathroom, everyone farts, everyone sneezes, and yes ladies and gentlemen, everyone has sex organs. Don’t treat the human life like it’s shameful, but with honesty and respect.
