• Yes on my pre-teenage days. But it is somehow awkward for me since I really don't like talking to them regards on the so much serious matters. But since I'm a parent now, I do it on different attack so my kids won't feel as awkward as I felt before. Generations nowadays are so different on my generation. The youth today needs to feel that you as a parent is also a friend that they can talk to about anything on any matter. Not like before, parents are authority.
  • no, rny parents never did that, learned it frorn friends
  • My mom just threw a college-level anatomy book on my bed and told me that my dad was too busy to answer questions. LOL
    • Linda Joy
      lol. I guess she knew you could handle it!
  • Still waiting for "the talk" but I think I've figured it out for myself.
    • Linda Joy
      Do you have children?
    • Professor Yaffle
      No, I figured out that part!
    • Linda Joy
      So you're saying you don't have children because you figured it out and didn't want any?
    • Professor Yaffle
      Possibly influenced by being born to a teenage mother, I figured out how not to have "an accident" when I was too young & immature to be a parent and I now consider myself too old (& immature) to be a parent.
  • My total sex education was from my dad...if you have sex with a man that you're not married to then God will send you to hell. From there it was trial & error. I never had children of my own so I never had "the talk" with MY kids. I did have a step daughter that her dad wouldn't talk to about it. I finally told her that if she heard anything that didn't make sense & she needed more reliable info to just ask & I'd tell her the truth. Even if she simply had any questions, I answer them honestly. I found with her that it was less confusing for everybody involved to let her ask the question that she understood & that made it easier for me to respond in a way that she understood. I guess that I did OK because she's now in her 30s & she & hubby have 6 wonderful kids!!!
    • Linda Joy
      Sounds like a good idea. And as long as they wanted 6 kids that's great!

      I'm of the opinion that when you've reached the correct number, it's time to make other arrangements or be more careful.
  • Never happened in either case.
