The Daddy Complex

I'm curious, with boys inevitably you end up having the big Sex discussion earlier than you planned. Do you have any ideas on how you will handle it?

Why do you have the talk earlier with boys?

Experts say American parents tend to wait too long to have the sex talk as well as the drug talk. I think the problem is we think it has to be “a talk” rather than an ongoing discussion.

If my boys ask a question about a sex-related issue, we have a conversation about it. Thanks to our discussions, my boys already know about:

  • male and female private parts
  • how babies are made (the biological part, anyway)
  • heterosexuality and homosexuality and that both are perfectly fine
  • that Boba Fett isn’t really a bad guy per se, but rather made a few bad decisions
