It can be tough when your little ones start flying the nest. Watching your kids grow up is a privilege for each and every parent, but making sure that they are making the right lifestyle and relationship choices can be tough to keep tabs on. While you want to respect your child’s choices as they enter into adulthood, teenage tantrums can be hard to deal with – in particular if it means talking about sex. Knowing when and how to begin the conversation about periods, penises and condoms, not to mention that choosing the right protection is no easy task. It can be just as nerve wracking and embarrassing for you as a parent as it is for them, so choose your moment wisely and be honest. It’s incredibly important that your teen is aware of the risks behind unprotected sex, and why they should be being safe rather than sorry.
