Having a lot of trouble with my toxic sister who found out from her son that my 14 year old daughter was having sex with her boyfriend.I then got a text to tell me my 17 year old son (and his 15 y/o gf) are having sex and my 14 year old daughter and bf are also having sex (shock horror).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.Reassure them that this is part of growing up and that most teenagers will experience these feelings from time to time.
Some parents, if they buy a book, prefer to give the book to their child and encourage them to read it at their own pace.
There are so many more parts of growing up beyond puberty and sexual development.
You should also talk to them about how they may change in terms of their interests, feelings towards the opposite sex, falling in love and dealing with feelings of embarrassment and awkwardness.
This text was also sent to my Mum and has caused a lot of fallout. My daughter has been going out with her boyfriend since January, he was 16 now 17. They are mad on each other and he is a nice lad and thinks the world of her.
Id had a chat with her in the early days about waiting etc, but despite that I found a packet of pills in her make up bag when I was looking for the mascara she had "borrowed"!
