It’s best to start talking with #children about sexuality early. You may ask, “How early?” For young children, you can start by teaching them the names of their body parts or asking if they know why girls and boys look different #FPFriday
When we talk to children about sex, it’s important to keep our conversation age appropriate #FPFriday
If a five-year-old asks, “What is birth?” we might respond, “When a baby comes out of a mother’s body #FPFriday
If a 10-year-old asks the same question, our answer would have more detail and might begin with, “After nine months of growing inside its mother’s uterus, a baby comes out through her vagina #FPFriday
Providing young people with information that is age-appropriate makes it easier for them to understand that sex is a natural part of human and emotional development but it is meant for an appropriate time(Avoid saying “it is for daddy & mummy) #FPFRIDAY
By the time they turn 19 years old, 70 percent of teens have had SEX, so It’s important to give truthful, useful, and accurate information about sex and sexuality #FPFriday
Educate your children, teens, adolescents and youths about their sexuality early in other to create safe spaces for them #FPFriday
