Sexual health How parents teach

Sexual health includes a range of topics related to sexuality, including relationships, values, and reproduction. When parents talk with their kids about all aspects of sexual health, kids tend to grow up to develop respectful relationships and make smarter choices.

Talking with kids about sexual health is challenging for most parents. Many were raised in homes where sex was rarely discussed; they had no role models for these conversations. Others think of sexual health only in terms of having sex. As a result, many parents wait until their kids are teens to talk with them, then only warn them about potential consequences.
