Additionally, PAMF has provided some Additional Resources below that may help to open communication with your child regarding sexuality.
Even with the support of these external resources, it is important to remember: parents are the most important sexuality educators for their children.
Talking about sexuality with your children can be a challenge.
Sometimes parents are fearful about saying too much, too soon (although there's no evidence that this should be a concern).
Some parents feel they don't know enough to be a reliable source of accurate information.
Additionally, when teens feel uncomfortable coming to their parents or guardians regarding difficult issues, such as sex, they often turn to their friends and/or the media in order to gain information.
Most faith traditions talk about sexuality as a gift of God – something to be respected and in which to find joy.
