Well-informed children make better-informed decisions regarding their sexuality. Unfortunately, many parents are confused about what they should tell their children, and when and how this should happen. Take action: Remember that sex education is an ongoing process – questions should be answered naturally and in an age-appropriate fashion; model the lessons you want to teach your children through your own behaviour, expectations and messages; know your facts, even if it means reading up; when asked for facts, give facts, not your own ideas or values; encourage curiosity and self-confidence in your children – curious children end up being better informed and self-confident children overcome peer pressure more easily; foster positive feelings about sexuality; and answer what is asked, without going into unnecessary details. 0 More: Daily Dose: Are you drinking your sugar intake?Health-in-Motion advertisement Other news Medical SEE: How this woman's foot fungus got out of control Mental health Do we need a break from our smartphones?
