Great tips on how to talk to your kids about sex
Explaining sex to children can feel like a mine-field for children (and their parents!) but it doesn't have to be suggests Azania Mosaka.
The 702 presenter sat down with educational psychologist at the Family Life Centre, Claudia Abelheim to talk about how to go about the often dreaded experience.
Albelheim says children have access to a world of information and that parents should be the first to lay the foundation.
If your kids know that they can talk to you about this stuff then they can talk to you about anything.Claudia Abelheim, Educational psychologist at the Family Life Centre
She says her approach is teaching parents to give a response instead of a reaction.
Often the reaction is what creates that shame, shame around 'I have asked something bad, there must be something wrong with this topic', and then that starts to build that negative idea and attitude around your body and your sexuality.Claudia Abelheim, Educational psychologist at the Family Life Centre
Albelheim says it is best to stick to the facts and share your own truth.
Give the facts but also talk about your own religion or cultural beliefs on that particular subject. You can't ignore the cultural side of things.Claudia Abelheim, Educational psychologist at the Family Life Centre
