From Your Tango

I met Jay when he was four years old. He came into my office because he said, “She’s a Itchbay and I would like to Fawk her” to a preschool girl. He was four.

I truly believe that he had no idea what he was saying and what the actual words meant. However, he had been exposed to these words and had even witnessed many things that he never should have. Jay had been recently removed from his parents custody and sent to live with his grandfather.

Why am I telling you this? Your kids are going to school with other Jays now. He’s the little boy with behaviorial problems. He’s the grade-school kiddo who french kisses girls on the bus. He’s the sexually promiscuous teenager.

    This is VERY important topic. I’ve been talking to my daughter for years about sex–you have to keep that line of communication open. It’s not just other kids you have to worry about–adults as well. If your child feels comfy talking to you then you are far more likely to maintain a healthy relationship in the future.

    It is so important to have the sex talk early on and tell your kids everything. I’m in college right now trying to start a Sex Ed Weekend program where we discuss sex ed to the campus. We are trying to talk about:

    -How pregnancy happens-How to use contraception and where to get it for free/cheap (The Pill, condoms, IUD, etc.)-STDs-Emotional aspects-Laws (Statutory rape, rape, molestation, age of consent, sexual harassment, the power of “no”)
    -Options if you are unexpectedly pregnant
