For adults, sexuality is one of the most embarrassing and awkward topics of discussion especially when it comes to educating children. Adults often fear that if they talk about sex with children, they may want to try it. The fact of the matter is that children are curious about sexuality. Whether you talk with them about it or not, they will get the information from somewhere. So why not get it from you? Despite the uncomfortable feelings about sexuality, parents and other trusted adults must rise to the occasion and have "The Talk!" Children are in desperate need of true comprehensive, developmentally-appropriate, medically accurate, inclusive, culturally competent information about sexuality. Having "The Talk," will empower them with knowledge, skills and tools to make healthier, safer and informed decisions about sexuality that may one day save their life.
