Prepare Your Child for the Teens

Teenagers. Even the word is enough to strike terror in a parent's heart! If you've watched other parents with their teenage children or you have an older teenager yourself, you know this can be a very trying period for you and your child. There are a lot of adjustments to be made and anxieties to face, but you can also look forward to exciting changes in your child's development. This is where the Boy Scouts' motto "be prepared" can really help.






Although we live in the 21st century, sex-education is something that is still lacking in India, and most other countries. When the reliable sources fail to communicate their message, teenagers turn to unreliable sources such their peers or the internet for knowledge about the same. The same way, if the parents talk to their children about puberty and secondary sexual changes in an open, non-tabooed manner, it would go a long way in helping their teens understand and accept the changes that they would be eventually going through.

I believe it can be done by any of the parents or both together, all that matters is the comfort level between u and ur Kids. how openly u talk and address the issue.


I need to talk to my 12 year old son about sex. How do I do it. Is it best done by the father or mother?
