There comes a time when this has to happen. If you are a parent, you have had this happen. The all important question, some kids ask you as a parent.

“Mom, Dad, where do babies come from?”

For someone younger, this is an easy answer. You can say, the stork, the mall, or something else simplistic.

However, there will be a time where this will not be easy. Why?

Because they will be teenagers.

And as you doubt are aware, being a teenager and the topic of sex is complex.

The  fact is 48% of teenagers will be sexually active before the age of 16. The other fact is that if they are NOT active, they are thinking about it. Because we at one time or another, we all think about sex.

So, from personal perspective , or if you are a parent of a teenager, is there a right way or a wrong way to deal with the topic of teenagers and sex? Is there any topic you should avoid with teenagers?

  1. Honesty is the best policy. Let them know whatever they want to know. But, put strong emphasis on STDs and pregnancy and protecting themselves.
