Parents learning together from Their own experiences
Curiosity about sex is a natural step from learning about the body. Sex education helps children understand about the body and helps them feel positive about their own bodies.
Discussing sex is also part of starting open communication with your child. Early, honest, and open communication between parents and children is very important, especially when your child becomes an adolescent. If open communication is normal, children and young people are more likely to speak with parents about other problems of adolescence, such as depression, relationships, and the abuse of drugs and alcohol, as well as sexual issues.
