Sex education is a very vital part of parenting. Quite a number of youths today's whose sexual lives have gone south are Products of lack of or poor sex education orientation.
A good stage in a child's life to introduce sex education is any time around the period where he has fully grown sense and ability to understand and comprehend things. This age is around 7 to 10 years old however, caution should be taken not to expose the child to more than his age can comprehend.
The best or vital stage however is once he starts showing the signs of puberty. At this period, he begins to experience change in his physical appearance.
It is important at this stage that he understands what sex is, the right time to have it or wait till and the dangers of having it prematurely (outside wedlock).
That’s for each couple to decide.
I’d say probably the earlier the better, as kids are going to be exposed and find out. Better they get a proper introduction from you than from other kids via porn, etc.
There is no particular age.
As soon as the child reaches puberty age, you should start intimating them about sex.
They start having urges around that time and it is important to tell them about sex before they do something you wouldn't want them to do.
It depends n the social-culture of certain country. But it should start as early as possible. When the parents think the age is perfect for their kids to know about sex, then they can start to talk to them. No matter what the age is.
But I think we should start the education on around 10 years. Coz in that age they grow curiosity about sex. So it's the best time to let them know.
this is question that is bothering me a lot, from the day that I know that I was going to be a father,and now i have 3 daughters growing up.
When the kid reaches to a point that he or she can understand things already, the earlier the better. why? parents should tell them about this reality other than them knowing it from someone else and embed a wrong idea about it.
kids mind is very fragile, once its tainted you cant easily take away an idea or change it.
its the parents responsibility to educate their children on what lies ahead.
When they are at the adolescent period. Talking about it while they are too young wouldn't help them remember. Talking about it while they are developing their secondary sexual characteristics would make sense because this is the time they would be sexually curious. It's better to have you talk about it to them that let them discover from other sources that may not be the best teachers.
