Sooner or later your kids will start asking questions about sex. Some parents believe that when the time comes, giving information on the subject will be easy, that it will all be a matter of talking. Everything seems very easy, but when it comes time for the talk, surely in most cases, it will seem more complicated, in the case of children. Therefore, it is important to prepare to talk about sex with your children.If you're self-conscious, embarrassed, or embarrassed, your kids will notice.

Is it possible to make the talk about sex education easier? You are right. The trick is to stand firm, never invent or lie, not evade the question and not answer more than your child asks. The ideal is to talk about sex in a dropper, that is, to the extent of your curiosity, your previous knowledge on the subject and according to your age. To find out how much information they have and what they need, start by asking the questions yourself. Based on his answers, you will realize what he knows and what you must tell him to satisfy his curiosity.

It is convenient to start talking about sex with your child from the moment he begins to know his body and to name it. For children it is very important that each part of their body has a name and not a "nickname". If we speak of the head is the head, the hand is the hand, the penis is the penis, the buttock is the buttock, and so on. Avoid giving other names to the genital organs so that the child does not feel confused. Another advantage of chatting with the children about sex is to increase intimacy and affection between both of them, to open ways so that they can discuss everything at home and to give the child the security that he thinks that "I am going to ask my father and mother why they they always answer me ".

Here are some of the questions children ask parents and some suggestions for answers, which can help guide you:

- Why am I different from my little sister? From the age of two and, in some cases even earlier, children will notice their differences when discovering their own bodies. In this case, it is advisable to tell him that a boy is different from a girl just as men are different from women. For a young child, this answer is sufficient.

- Where was I born? This is a question often asked by children as young as four years of age. Children know that fruits come from the market, that cookies come from the supermarket, and toys from the stores, and so they want to know where they came from. In this case, just say that he came from the parents.

- Why do boys pee standing up and girls sitting down? It is the same as asking why do boys change diapers for briefs and girls for panties or why do boys have a penis and girls don't. Explain the concept of difference, that boys and girls are physically different and that they also differ in the way they dress. It is easy for boys to pee standing up due to the shape of their penis. On the other hand, since girls do not have a penis, they are more comfortable sitting down.

- How did I get out of your belly? Depending on the age of the child, the answer should be given in a more or less clear way. If the child is very young, just say that he came out of the belly and nothing else. But if the child is not satisfied with that and you notice that he can understand because he is a little older, tell him that he came out through one of the three little holes that women have. One is to get the poop out, the other to urinate, and the other to get the baby out. With that, surely, the child will feel satisfied and will not ask you anything more. More important what to answer your child when questions about sexuality arise, is the attitude you will have when answering them. The tone of the voice, the security of the information, the fact of being calm or not, is captured by the child in the form of information.
