Having the Talk: Educating Your Children About Sex

Parents are finding that their children know a startling amount of information about sex from a very young age.  A recent study published by Pediatrics suggests that conversations about sex between parents and children needs to happen much sooner.  By the time conversations happen, children have experienced far more sex talk than their parents would have ever imagined.  How early should parents explain sex to their children?  How detailed should they be? As Dr. Mohler notes on today’s program, this is not an unintentional conversation parents have at random with their children.  This is a conversation that should be thought out and prepared with biblical wisdom and concern.  Christian parents must be prepared to do far more than talk to their children about sex: they must teach about sex, marriage and God’s will for faithful relationships.
