“But you see, this is generally a fun hole”
Wow. No cover up no nothin. Just straight to the birds and the bees. You got bigger balls than me Boum.
Personally I totally approve. The earlier children learn the biological facts of sex and childbirth the better imo. Nothing messy, just the facts, because it should be dry, cold knowledge by the time it becomes relevant to their interests.
Giving me the sex talk long before I had any interest in what it meant was one of the VERY few things I think my parents did right.
I agree with you. Children need to understand the body before their hormones start to kick in. They won’t be confused then when hair starts sprouting everywhere or in the girls’ case, when they randomly start bleeding and feeling pain.
I agree, because at this point I don’t think a child has any bias toward or against sex or childbirth, it’s just an abstract concept. It’s not until hormones until someone actually wants it (unless, of course, society is telling them that they want it, but that’s a story for another day).
It’s also easier to start when they’re small. Babies and toddlers have no shame, so you get used to talking with them about vulvas and penises all the time. It not only makes sex talk later easier, it means that you’re not freaked out on the day your child decides to tell the bank clerk all about vulvas.
I see no problem in using the real words, that’s how I was raised. I feel like avoiding the subject or using childish words makes it look like the whole thing is taboo, and then the sex talk as teenagers would be REALLY awkward (as if it’s not already awkward enough).
Oh I’m not criticizing. I’m just saying you’re braver than I would be in that situation.
Good for you. My kids used scare other kid’s parents. They would be telling their kids some fantasy and my kids would start laughing at them. “Nope, that’s not how it works.” Made for some interesting conversations.
