Teach Your Tweens About Sex With These 10 Helpful Books
Do you remember the first time you learned about the birds and the bees? Talking about sex can be awkward as a kid and as a parent, but it's so important. The American Academy of Pediatrics says you should talk to your kids about sex "early and often." Some of these conversations can include talking about what sex is, what sexual orientations are, STDs, and when to know it's the right time to have sex. It's much better for them to learn about healthy, safe sex practices from you than from their friends!
In addition to talking to your tweens, you can also provide them with some helpful, informative, and entertaining books about sex, consent, and intimacy designed just for them. My mom did this for me, and it was so much better to read about sex, then ask her questions later. Discover the 10 best books about sex for tweens ahead.
