Ireland listen in sex chat
You may change your settings at any time but this may impact on the functionality of the site. HERE IT COMES, the ‘dreaded’ chat with your children about sex.
Your child may ask you to tell them about how babies are made, they may hint that they have heard something about sex or you may just decide that it is time to talk to them and teach them some of the facts of life. You should have the chat when your son or daughter show signs of wanting information.
You can talk about the development of the baby in the womb and how they grow from a tiny egg to have arms, hands, fingers etc. Not providing some kind of answer for a child can result in them using their imagination to fill in the gaps, so it is better if you avoid that!
For older children, talking about sex is so much more than just the act of sex itself.
The first question that parents often ask is ‘what age should my child be when I broach the subject of sex? Also, they may ask questions when they are younger – possibly at the age of five or six.
The question, “Where do babies come from” is a typical one. For example, you want sit a six-year-old down and tell them the full facts, but you may say that when a man and a woman love each other very much, a special seed from the man can go to a special egg in the woman and then a baby can grow.
