Responsible parents who he spend a lot of time and effort and teaching the importance of good health to their kids clam up when it comes to sexual health. Kids are very quick to realize that the parent is not comfortable talking about sexual health. This leads to a piquant situation where the person that the kid can trust the most becomes silent on such an important topic.
In such a scenario, the kid uses alternative source of information about sexual health. Needless to say, it often leads to complications when they choose the wrong person for help.
Every responsible parent has two options. Either you should not bother about the child or you should be prepared to fulfill all your responsibilities. Teaching your child about various facets and aspects of sexual health is your duty. You are one person who has the welfare of the child as top most priority. You will not break the trust that the child has. In such a scenario, encouraging your child to rely upon nameless and faceless so called experts found online or friends does not make sense.
There is a tendency to provide sexual health education to females and to leave males free to find information from wherever they want. There also a belief that the male child shall find this information from friends or adult content on the internet. Such an approach means that the male child will be encouraged to check inappropriate content on the internet. It is not the right place to know more about sexual education and sexual health.
If you are not comfortable discussing these matters with your kids, you should try to work through a trusted family member. You can even opt for counseling to find the right way to discuss these issues. Do not leave your child to take care of these issues on their own. That is only going to lead to unwanted complications.
