How to Foster Healthy Sexual Development in Your Young Person

There are enough tips to fill and entire 300-page book! But the basics are these:

  • Talk. Discuss. When something comes up on the radio, music, television, movie, in a conversation, an advertisement, regarding love, dating, relationships, sexual innuendo, make conversation. Ask your daughter or son what life is like these days - then LISTEN.
  • Never negate what a young person feels.
  • Never condemn what a young person feels.
  • Never make a young person sorry for sharing with you.
  • Know when to leave a young person alone. All humans, regardless of age, become tired and irritable.
